The Entrepreneurship Academy recently hosted an Elevator Pitch Competition (PDF). On Wednesday, April 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Center for Tomorrow, entrants had 90 seconds to make a pitch (approximately the amount of time they would have to make a pitch to someone with whom they were riding an elevator). Participants could not use any visual aids or props (such as PowerPoint or Prezi since they would not have those resources in an elevator). A complete list of the pitch guidelines can be downloaded as a PDF.
