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.
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
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!
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
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 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 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.
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.
It was a great experience and I am glad I did it. It was cool to talk to the accomplished men who came back to our school as coaches, mentors, and judges.
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 mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
The Veale Venture Challenge introduced me to mentors who would like to help me start my company, which would be very beneficial to my future.
