Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

The elevator pitch is one of the most important pitches you can give.

Here are some key points to remember in delivering your elevator pitch:

Keep it around thirty seconds. 

Practice it to get the timing right.

Use the rest of your time to engage with your audience in questions and answers.

Talk at a normal pace and don’t speed up or rush it.

Rushing shows a lack of confidence in your pitch.

Use a conversational tone so you invite questions and feedback.

Show your passion and let your energy come through.

After you write your pitch, practice it and modify it 'til it’s polished.

Replace the filler words with more descriptive ones.

It’s important to show the problem, the solution, and the benefits. 

Customize your pitch for the audience by focusing on what’s important to them.

It’s okay to have more than one version of the same pitch.
