The Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum has partnered with John Carroll University to provide an entrepreneurship summer camp in 2020.
Over the course of 5 days, the JCU entrepreneurial playground provides high school dreamers with the opportunity to practice the skills necessary to identify and build their dream product, service, and/or passion. JCU will leverage an extensive network of Cleveland’s most innovative entrepreneurs and organizations to lead campers through a series of experiences that enable them to:
But campers do more than learn and practice – they also have fun! While making new friends, campers enjoy nightly activities and a few field trips will create an unforgettable experience!
Camp concludes with a Demo Day, where peers, families, and the community celebrate campers’ “Dream It -Discover It-Do It” journey.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
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.
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.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As a high school student, it’s hard to know where to get started. The Young Entrepreneur Market is a great place to start your business.
I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
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!
