An elevator pitch is an effective and concise speech that sums up the unique and interesting aspects of your idea. It is meant to generate excitement and interest from your audience.At pitch4, we want you to pitch us (and your classmates) your innovative idea for a product or service.


  • Your elevator pitch should be no longer than 90 seconds long
  • You may register as an individual or as a team of two
  • You may use a single index card for notes, but no other props or tools are allowed

Judging will be based half on the feasibility of your idea and half on your presentation. The competition is only open to Mount Holyoke students, but all are welcome to attend.
