While many people aspire to make the world a better place, not everyone knows how to go about it. That's where entrepreneurs step in: people with big ideas who aren't afraid to make their dreams a reality. Entrepreneurs on the new pitch show Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch have 60 seconds to convince investors that their product or business can improve the lives of others. From there, the judges decide whether they want to hear more, and they either open the Entrepreneur Elevator doors to the boardroom or send the contestant back to the lobby.

So many experiences and transactions today occur online, and users are becoming accustomed to trusting strangers thanks to the rise of the sharing economy. This is a common theme on this week's episode of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch, in which young innovators share new ideas about how to bolster virtual interactions, from a secondhand clothing marketplace to an app that connects lawyers and clients. Watch the episode above and see which entrepreneurs walk away with a deal. Then, be sure to support your favorite on Indiegogo if you think it's the next million-dollar idea.
