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.
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 realized while attending Veale Startup Week: The Business of 3D Printing that even a high schooler can come up with a million dollar idea.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.
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 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!
This program really exposed the dedication and hard work that the people of Northeast Ohio put into making their own independent businesses and giving back to the community.
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 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 wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
I love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
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.
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 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.
E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
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.
