TechCrunch has launched a new site called Elevator Pitches. The idea is as simple as it is neat, you submit a 60 second video giving your ‘elevator pitch’ for your startup. They then put the videos up on you tube and via their site allow users to rate the pitch and comment on them. The highest rated pitches will then get a mention on TechCrunch itself.
The benefit is twofold here. First you get a chance to see what a lot of people think of your startup as well as your pitching technique. The critiquing itself can be a huge benefit, as long you don’t take it too personal of course, allowing you to improve your delivery.
The second is of the exposure and if you get on the main site even more exposure.
Currently they only take pitches from existing startups but will eventually open it up to those who are still at the concept stage.Like what you read? Don't miss anything, subscribe by RSSl!
