Columbia-Harlem Small Business Development Center Capital One Pitch Competition
An elevator pitch is a verbal summary of your idea, product or business model. You pitch to someone you are trying to influence during the time span of an elevator ride from 30 seconds to two minutes. Ideally, your audience should be so compelled by your pitch that they request an extended meeting. It is important to communicate your business effectively. Whether you are speaking with family and friends, potential customers or investors, it is important to appear confident and excited about your business. You never know when a new opportunity will come along! Come join us to watch our pitch competition participants present their business pitches!
