I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
The executive coaches were enthusiastic and gave useful and critical suggestions to improve student plans and presentations! The judges at the final competition were very experienced and offered excellent questions to the students.
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 mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
Through this program I made more contacts than I could have ever imagined and learned about the business community and all of the opportunities Cleveland has to offer.
I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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.
Even those who are not specifically interested in entrepreneurship would pick up valuable communication skills at Veale Pitchfest, especially through the team building exercises.
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.
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 Veale Venture Challenge was incredible. I loved being in a setting with so many aspiring business professionals like myself. It taught me that it’s never too early to start your own business
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!
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.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
