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.
