You never know who will walk (or swim) through the doors of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch. Check out episode six for some true surprises!

As regular viewers know, on our 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.
