World Elevator Pitch Competition
Thu, 3 November 2016, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
Presented in cooperation with Chambre de commerce et d'Industrie de Québec (Quebec City Board of Trade).
One of the first challenges that every entrepreneur or young leader is facing is how to effectively communicate his business model or his idea to potential investors/partners.
Originally, the name "elevator pitch" reflects the idea that it should be possible to deliver the summary in the time span of an elevator ride! This is a condensed argument in which you present yourself briefly (30 seconds - 2 minutes).
