As a high school student, it’s hard to know where to get started. The Young Entrepreneur Market is a great place to start your business.
I really liked the Business Plan Competition and have encouraged all my friends to do it. Not only was I learning about being an entrepreneur, but I also got to work with real life entrepreneurs. I learned so much.
I liked Executive Coaching Day a lot. I got feedback from people who don’t just study business, but who actually run them for a living.
I’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
This program really exposed the dedication and hard work that the people of Northeast Ohio put into making their own independent businesses and giving back to the community.
I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
The best part of the Veale Pitchfest was hearing everyone’s personal ideas and then coming together as a team to create the overall pitch.
I love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.
The Veale Venture Challenge introduced me to mentors who would like to help me start my company, which would be very beneficial to my future.
The Veale Pitchfest was a great exercise in teamwork and collaboration. It taught me how to effectively share my ideas with a large group and how to build on the great ideas of others.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
I keep coming back to the Young Entrepreneur Market and it’s one of my favorite things to do. I love seeing a customer’s face light up and getting satisfaction from selling something. I love that feeling.
I knew I wanted to be an engineer, but now I know I want to be an engineer that works on sports equipment, which I can prototype with a 3D printer. Thanks Veale Startup Week!
The Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum has allowed Beaumont School to offer programs that would not otherwise be offered due to cost. Every student is eligible to participate no matter what her financial situation. The guidance and support we receive has encouraged us to explore new opportunities for our girls and do our best to reach every student at Beaumont, showing each girl the possibilities of business and entrepreneurship.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
It was a great experience and I am glad I did it. It was cool to talk to the accomplished men who came back to our school as coaches, mentors, and judges.
I always thought Ohio is a state that’s not in my future, but Veale Startup Week: The Business of 3D Printing showed me just how much the people of Cleveland care about students.
