    Check out this post here. It has an audio clip embedded from StartupNation co-founders, Jeff and Rich Sloan, and a fellow community member as well. It is a good example of what to do and what not to do on elevator pitches.

    Try to think out of the box, people who care about these pitches, listen to hundreds of these every month, watchThe Summit Kilimanjaro for an example of out of the box elevator pitching! Put like if you like it by the way.

    Besides presenting in a creative way, focus on:
    1. Why? What moves you What problem are you solving?
    2. How do you solve it?
    3. Who cares about it (potential market, user traction)
    4. Why are u different from exixsting alternatives?
    5. Why are u the perfect team to deliver? Complimentary vision, experience and drive.

    Remember to smile and convey a dream, after all, investors will put their money if the are able to share your dream
