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.
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 Venture Challenge dramatically helped with public speaking, which is something you need now in high school, but especially later on in your career.
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.
I love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
Through this program I made more contacts than I could have ever imagined and learned about the business community and all of the opportunities Cleveland has to offer.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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 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.
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!
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.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
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 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 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
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
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 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.
Everything about the competition was amazing! The executive coaches were fantastic, and the location was amazing. The judges on the day of the competition were really great and provided quick and thoughtful feedback.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.
