Key Takeaways

  • Investors want to put their money into great projects. Give them all the reasons they need to believe in you.
  • Show your passion! Investors want to see that you can fight through adversity.
  • Practice, practice, practice — you'll be happy you can do your pitch in your sleep when the lights and nerves hit.

This season on Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch, we've witnessed a steady stream of contestants who dream of making it to the top floor. All they need to do? Nail their 60-second pitch. We've seen countless entrepreneurs earn the chance to enter the boardroom with the chance to seal a life-changing deal or win cash prizes from Amazon to get their business to the next level. Some walk out victorious; some must pick themselves up to fight another day.

In this episode, a new group shows up to try their luck in the elevator. Will they succeed in reaching new heights at the press of a button? Or will they freeze up at the moment of truth? Watch and see what happens on an all-new episode!

Some key learning moments from our board of investors:

"This show is called Elevator Pitch. You have 60 seconds to prove that you have a viable business that we want to invest in. You need to nail that pitch!" — Kim Perell

"You should tell us what your product does, but what you really need to do is tell investors why they should care." — Marc Randolph

"I need to see passion — you're going to need it when you face adversity in your business." — Logan Stout
