Description

Celebrate Youth Entrepreneurship on Wednesday, April 10 at University School's Hunting Valley campus. The 11th annual celebration will feature a free, public keynote from Graham Veysey, a serial entrepreneur with a wide range of businesses in consumer products and media. Following the keynote will be an opportunity to purchase creations from University School middle school students and other students from across Northeast Ohio at the Young Entrepreneur Market.

A serial entrepreneur with a wide range of businesses in media production and consumer products, Graham will discuss the entrepreneurial mindset and his own exciting and fast-paced entrepreneurial journey. A 2000 US alum, Graham received his Bachelor’s Degree from Bates College and worked as Director of Marketing and Communications at Nantucket Nectars and Plum TV for four years before becoming an entrepreneur.

Nine years ago, Graham started North Water Partners, an Emmy Award winning video production firm, but he didn’t stop there. With a strong interest in his hometown of Cleveland, he saw an opportunity to develop an area north of Ohio City, subsequently named Hingetown. He initially brought in Rising Star and Urban Orchid, and other businesses soon followed, creating a vibrant urban neighborhood. Then in 2015, he and a childhood friend started MANCAN, which offers good, reasonably priced wine in the convenience of a can.

Graham is also actively engaged in the region’s civic life. He is involved in urban farming through Green City on a Blue Lake, serves on Cleveland Public Theatre and several other boards, was a 2016 Presidential Leadership Scholar, and ran for a U.S. congressional seat in 2012.

Celebrate Youth Entrepreneurship is presented by University School’s Young Entrepreneur Institute and is made possible through the generous support of Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
