elevator pitch

Elevator pitch: An investor describes how to compose a description of your work, which someone can understand in the time it takes to ride an elevator. He recommends a sentence to describe the problem, a sentence to describe what you do about it, a sentence to describe how you’re better than other solutions, and a sentence to describe who already believes in you. In comments there’s a followup 10 Tips to a Perfect Pitch, for when you’ve moved past the quick paragraph and into a longer, more formal presentation of your work.

  1. Your short, sweet summary is as elegant as the elevator pitch itself. Thank you for it. I’m in the product management business, so I’m hanging on to this with my first bloglines clipping ever.
