Congratulations to all 34 LI Virtual Enterprises International firms that participated in the Long Island Business Plan Competition and Trade Show!


The passion, enthusiasm, and professionalism of the students as they represented their VEI “firms, conducted business in the trade show and presented the business plans were impressive to all—judges, college professors, college students, Iris and the VEI staff Nick and Tyler, visiting administrators and teachers and Fran Federman, Irv and I.  It was an ambitious and successful day!
