Elevator Pitch

Definition of Elevator Pitch

An Elevator Pitch is an extremely concise description of an entrepreneur's idea.

The idea is that you should be able to present your business model to an investor in a compelling fashion in the time you might have if you met them on an elevator ride. If you can't describe your business model in a few minutes, you need to work on your elevator pitch and simplify the message.
