Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
The Veale Venture Challenge showed me the diversity of people and ideas throughout Northeast Ohio and that there are many opportunities for individuals of all ages.
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.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
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.
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.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
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.
E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
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 introduced me to mentors who would like to help me start my company, which would be very beneficial to my future.
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 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.
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.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
