What happens when you surprise a group of entrepreneurs with a chance to pitch to Arlene Dickinson for one minute in an elevator for a chance at $100,000? The Startup Coach was on hand when Workhaus hosted the filming of the TELUS Pitch 2019 promotional video. With special invites to Workhaus and TorontoStarts members to come and pitch for one minute. Little did they know they would end up giving an elevator pitch to Arlene Dickinson! You can submit your one minute pitch online and find out more about the TELUS Pitch 2019 here
It was great to see so many community startups out for this event including BooknBrunch, Sobie Systems, Boss Insights, Instage, Neutral Advocate and so many more. Below is the video and some pictures The Startup Coach was able to take.
Is your elevator pitch ready? If you only have 30 seconds to hook and investor or customer can you? These entrepreneurs were prepared to pitch and will be ready next time they step into an elevator and turn to the person next to them.
You can submit your 1 min video online until June 25 to apply or look for the purple TELUS elevator at an event near you.
