The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience and I am glad I did it. It was cool to meet all the accomplished men who came back to our school to coach us.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
It was a lot of fun watching and listening to the other student entrepreneurs at the Veale Venture Challenge finals. For me, presenting on stage in front of more than one hundred people was a bit more “real” and much scarier than presenting in front of a few judges at school.
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.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
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’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
The Veale Venture Challenge and the entrepreneurship programming at my school provide tremendous opportunities for students like me.
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.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge showed me the diversity of people and ideas throughout Northeast Ohio and that there are many opportunities for individuals of all ages.
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.
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 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.
