Sometimes a pitch moves investors to tears, and sometimes it moves them to dance. This episode of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch has all the feels.

Each week on our show, entrepreneurs are challenged to step into an elevator and pitch their business on camera to a board of investors in 60 seconds or less. If the investors like what they hear, the elevator doors open to reveal the boardroom, and contestants have the chance to walk away with life-changing funding, mentorship from the smartest minds in business and a personal and brand-defining moment.
