The Elevator Pitch

The elevator pitch is the tip of your business spear, and the sharpest spear breaks through the most effectively in conveying the problem and the solutions your company can provide. In a society of 140 characters or less, how do you capture attention meaningfully and authentically? Chris Van Dusen, writer and speaker for entrepreneurs and startups, will help you identify and formulate the most succinct and relevant elevator pitch for your business.

You will learn:

  • Common pitfalls and problems with traditional elevator pitches
  • How to engage and relate in less than 60 seconds
  • Proven strategies for formulating multiple pitches, depending on your audience
  • How society has changed and how that affects your pitch
  • Examples from startup CEOs and serial entrepreneurs regarding how to take a complex business plan and explain it in one sentence
  • The differences between the elevator and the VC pitch
