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.
The Veale Pitchfest was a great exercise in teamwork and collaboration. It taught me how to effectively share my ideas with a large group and how to build on the great ideas of others.
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.
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.
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.
Even those who are not specifically interested in entrepreneurship would pick up valuable communication skills at Veale Pitchfest, especially through the team building exercises.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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.
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 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.
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.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
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 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 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.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
