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 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.
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 loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
I always thought Ohio is a state that’s not in my future, but Veale Startup Week: The Business of 3D Printing showed me just how much the people of Cleveland care about students.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
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.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
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.
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 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.
I’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
