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.
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.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
The Veale Pitchfest was a great exercise in teamwork and collaboration. It taught me how to effectively share my ideas with a large group and how to build on the great ideas of others.
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.
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 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.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
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.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
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.
Mr. Veale’s vision and generosity have inspired Beaumont students in the fields of entrepreneurship and science. The world is a better place because of his incredible talents and his dedication to the next generation.
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.
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
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.
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.
