For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
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 mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
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 learned in class what it takes to get into business. I will always remember that. Without it, my business and I would not be where we are today.
Even those who are not specifically interested in entrepreneurship would pick up valuable communication skills at Veale Pitchfest, especially through the team building exercises.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
I’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
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.
