What is an elevator pitch?
An "elevator pitch" is a carefully crafted message designed to explain a business to a potential investor. The catch — it must be given in the time that it takes to ride up an elevator.
Elevator Pitch Challenge
The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship gives high school and middle school students the opportunity to take a sixty second idea, and turn it into an actual business. Each nominee here is either the owner or co-owner of his or her business.
All elevator pitch participants are also competing in the NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, presented by MasterCard Worldwide on October 3, 2013 in New York City.
