Most likely you already know what an “Elevator Pitch” is – that supposedly, it’s a short very to-the-point pitch that you give to an investor prospect in less than a minute….say the same amount of time it’d take to ride up to an office in a downtown skyscraper.

Least, that’s the thinking and what you can find all over the web….but I think – and hopefully can make the case here, that in reality an Elevator Pitch is “it!” It’s the single most important piece of early marketing that any startup founder can use to try to get interest and momentum in their new company!
