What is an Elevator Pitch?

  • A business-oriented, purposeful verbal message as fast as a ride in an elevator (generally 30 – 120 seconds) in understandable language
  • A concise, carefully planned, and well-practiced “answer” about yourself, your business, your firm, your project, etc.
  • A situation with an opportunity to sell your company’s identity and set yourself apart from other entrepreneurs

The Basics of an Elevator Pitch

  • Introduce yourself (name, title, company)
  • Description of your product/service and the investment opportunity/problem you are solving:
         – Including things like where your product/service will be sold, size of market, competitive differentiator, revenues, team, funding requirements, who will buy it and why will they buy it, when will it be ready to be sold/offered, what is the current status of company/product
         – The Hook – what are the strengths of your investment opportunity? § Know your audience – what you would use to hook a customer is different than an investor
  • Call to Action
         – What are you looking for and/or what are your next steps?
