Watch the Pitch That Landed a $175,000 Investment Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch is back, and the money is flowing!

By Entrepreneur Staff

Welcome back to an all-new season of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch, the show where entrepreneurs step into an elevator and have just 60 seconds to pitch their business on camera to a board of investors. 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.

This season we went big — big dreams, big drama and big money! Our investors have their ears and checkbooks open for the next great pitch.
