Today we had the elevator pitch seminar; it was a great experience with many interesting pitches and ideas.

In real life, opportunities can show up as surprises, and when you least expect it you are required to perform under time pressure and without any aids.  The great learning from this seminar was that you have to know your idea and be proud of it, and you have to be able to explain it in a very simple way.

Even though feedback is not a luxury that we can expect in real life, we believe that it could have been a good idea to have on the seminar. Just some quick words on what was good/bad about the performance and how to improve it. An option would be to let one person in the audience explain why they would not invest in the product.

Did you know: The expression elevator pitch comes from when you meet someone powerful in an elevator and want to make a quick pitch about your idea. The time you have is between the ground floor and his/her’s floor when the stake holder walks out.

One Thought on “Elevator pitch seminar – Feedback

    Hi,
    I guess after presentations, we discussed about what makes a pitch a good pitch. Instead of discussing for every 50 pitch (it would take lots of time and attention span is short) Furthermore, I gave examples from the presenters topics and the way they presenting without pointing finger to anyone. We discussed what makes a pitch good or not good. We also had clear description / template what should be included in the pitchand I think you could see the difference of good / not as good as pitch from the claps, from number of hands of people who were willing to invest to the idea. Thanks for the feedback and In the next class, I will show few examples on good pitch., meanwhile please read this: http://serdartemiz.com/?p=20
