On October 19, 2018,  Carle Place High School Virtual Enterprises International classes attended the Fifth Annual Virtual Enterprises International Business and Entrepreneurship Conference at LIU Post. This was an exciting opportunity for VEI students to meet, network with, and learn from some extraordinary business leaders who have started their own companies. 

Students heard from industry experts and successful entrepreneurs and also participated in informative and exciting breakout sessions. The keynote speaker was Marie Moody, Founder and President, of Stella & Chewy’s pet food company.  

Nicholas Pascarella, Vice President of Communications of Carle Place HS’s A Lil Twist pretzel company and Juliana Ferolie, Chief of Communications of the student-run Outlast Outerwear company, delivered elevator-pitches that were judged by business professionals. One of the firms even ended up making it to the finals! It was a very fun and exciting experience for all the students in VEI program.
