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!
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.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
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.

E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
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.
