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!
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
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.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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 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 loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
I keep coming back to the Young Entrepreneur Market and it’s one of my favorite things to do. I love seeing a customer’s face light up and getting satisfaction from selling something. I love that feeling.
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.
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.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
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
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 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.
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.
I learned in class what it takes to get into business. I will always remember that. Without it, my business and I would not be where we are today.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
I’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
