Yes, it is true that hearing yes and hearing no is part of any founder's investment journey. But as one Elevator Pitch contestant notes, getting yeses beats the heck out of getting nos.

Welcome to the season 10 finale of Elevator Pitch, where three final contestants fight for the opportunity to lock in a life-changing deal with one of our investors. Will they rise above the pressure and win big, or will they walk away empty-handed?

We're not going to tell you what happens, but one thing we can say about this episode is that the money and emotions are flowing. You'll have to watch to find out why, at one point, investor Kim Perell spontaneously exclaims, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"

Some takeaways from this intense finale:

  • When it comes to sales and projections, there are some numbers investors love to hear and some that set off their "Is this too good to be true?" detectors. Be aware that there is a fine line between outlining an exciting future versus something that sounds like a pipe dream.
  • Be sure to give a concrete use-case example of your product or service that clearly shows who will want to buy it and why.
  • Explain your mission and your passion for your business. A belief that you will make the world a better place could make the difference between an investor passing or funding.

Watch the season finale now to find out whose dreams made it to reality at the push of a button!
