Pitch Guidelines

Pitch Guidelines:

The purpose of the elevator pitch is to quickly get the potential investors’ attention, let them know what you have and what you are offering! Leave them wanting to know more!

Distribution of samples is prohibited!

Prototype by special request only!

No audio-visual equipment use permitted. No Power Point, transparencies, slides or audio assistance is allowed. You would not have this available in an elevator, so it is not available for the competition.

For team competitors, the designated presenter is chosen by the team members.

The “pitch” person will introduce themselves and the clock will then start immediately with a hard stop at two minutes.  (You will be given a 30-second warning that your time is almost up.)  Following his/her pitch, the student will leave the room and the next competitor will enter the room and wait for the signal to begin.
