I would tell my friends to enter the Veale Pitchfest competition because there are so many things that can be learned from it, not just about business, but about life.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
Everything about the competition was amazing! The executive coaches were fantastic, and the location was amazing. The judges on the day of the competition were really great and provided quick and thoughtful feedback.
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 Venture Challenge dramatically helped with public speaking, which is something you need now in high school, but especially later on in your career.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned that it’s worth it to take risks and devote your time to something that may or may not work out in the end.
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.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
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 love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
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.
Veale Startup Week taught me I can design, build, and learn new things and have fun, make new friends, and be myself while doing it!
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
I had a great experience and it was a lot of fun, especially the prizes. I got a lot of useful tips about public speaking. I definitely will convince my friends to participate next year.
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.
By taking part in these programs my skills and understanding of the business world have deepened, giving me a head start on a business major in college.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
