Watch the Pitch That Results in Life-Changing Investment and a Lot of Tears
Emotions and investment dollars run hot on the new episode of 'Elevator Pitch.'
Check out episode three of the new season of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch. In each episode of the show, entrepreneurs are challenged to step into an elevator and pitch their business on camera to a board of investors in 60 seconds or less. 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.

Who wins, and who gets sent down?
Sixty seconds may seem like a very short amount of time to explain an idea, but as this episode shows, the clock isn't always the enemy. One entrepreneur gets in the doors but has such a hard time explaining what the business actually is that our investors throw their hands up in exasperation. But more than one entrepreneur walks out with a deal that could change their company — and their life.
