The first 60 seconds of a business pitch can be the difference between achieving your highest dreams or falling flat on your face when seeking venture capital. Entrepreneur magazine teamed up with a group of real investors to put entrepreneurs to the ultimate pitch test for an exciting new streaming show debuting September 20 on entrepreneur.com.
In each episode, hopeful founders step into the Entrepreneur Elevator and have just one minute to present their idea, product or business. If the panel of highly influential investors likes what they hear, the doors open. If not, it's back to the ground floor. Aspiring entrepreneurs who make it to the top floor have just 5 minutes to impress the investors and shake on a deal.
