Our Trade Shows and Business Plan Competitions wouldn’t be the same without involvement from devoted industry professionals and business leaders willing to donate their time and expertise to building the skills of upcoming professionals.

On April 15th, a crowd of over 400 supporters from the business and education communities packed Tribeca Rooftop for our 3rd annual fundraising gala to celebrate VEI’s efforts to drive the future of business and innovation.



With $1 million of support from the New York Life Foundation, VEI is piloting the VE Junior Ventures Career Academy, a two-year program for 7th and 8th graders to develop technology and entrepreneurial skills by starting and managing business ventures. The initiative builds on VEI’s success delivering a high school global business simulation program over the last 19 years, and will be piloted in select New York City schools starting in the 2015-16 school year.
