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.
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 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 loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned that it’s worth it to take risks and devote your time to something that may or may not work out in the end.
I’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
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.
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.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
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.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
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.
The executive coaches were enthusiastic and gave useful and critical suggestions to improve student plans and presentations! The judges at the final competition were very experienced and offered excellent questions to the students.
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.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
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.
