Who wins and who gets kicked out?

Sixty seconds may seem like a very short time to explain an idea, but as this episode shows, the clock isn’t always the enemy. An entrepreneur gets into doors, but has such a hard time explaining what the business is really about that our investors throw up their hands in exasperation. But more than one entrepreneur walks away with a deal that could change their company and his life.

Season 8 of Elevator Pitch for Entrepreneurs is brought to you by Amazon Business with support from State Farm and Canon. New episodes air on Wednesdays on Follow Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch on Facebook, YouTube and IGTV.
