The Veale Venture Challenge and the entrepreneurship programming at my school provide tremendous opportunities for students like me.
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.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
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.
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 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 Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.

Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
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.
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.
By taking part in these programs my skills and understanding of the business world have deepened, giving me a head start on a business major in college.
