What is an Elevator Pitch?
An elevator pitch is a verbal summary of your idea, product or business model. You pitch to someone you are trying to influence during the time span of an elevator ride from 30 seconds to two minutes. Ideally, your audience should be so compelled by your pitch that they request an extended meeting.
How can I participate?
If you are a current or past client of the Columbia-Harlem Small Business Development Center, speak with your business advisor. If you are not a client and need assistance with business planning, development or expansion, please go to our website and sign up for an appointment.
Why should you learn to Pitch?
It is important to communicate your business effectively. Whether you are speaking with family and friends, potential customers or investors, it is important to appear confident and excited about your business. You never know when a new opportunity will come along!
