I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
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!
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
The Forum has inspired me to be more purposeful in stepping out of the classroom and connecting with what’s happening in the entrepreneurship space beyond education.
The business competition made me want to go to college and put all of my effort into my major and push myself to get it done no matter how hard the task becomes.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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 discovered my passion for business this year through my school’s entrepreneurship program. I learned valuable public speaking skills and met mentors. I plan to pursue my company, take more entrepreneurship classes, and learn all I can about business.
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.
Mr. Veale’s vision and generosity have inspired Beaumont students in the fields of entrepreneurship and science. The world is a better place because of his incredible talents and his dedication to the next generation.
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!
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
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’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
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 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 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.
Executive Coaching Day before the Veale Venture Challenge finals was a great experience and set me on the path of wanting to be an entrepreneur.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
