This week’s Entrepreneur introduces four startups, which include the maker of weighted pom-poms and a furniture subscription service.

One entrepreneur pitches with such enthusiasm that the judges were more curious about what she had for breakfast than her actual product. And while her pitch was eventually rejected, it helped lead to an important tip: When pitching, you should always use about 50 percent more energy than you feel comfortable with. 

After, the judges listen to a pitch which one of the judges calls his favorite idea he's heard on the show so far. 

To learn more about that startup, stream this week’s Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch.
