Elevator Pitch Contest – Canadian Residents Only

What better way is there to stress the importance of perfecting your elevator pitch than by creating a contest that awards the winner with $10,000 for the best elevator pitch? None I can think of. I just saw this via a group I belong to. It’s a fantastic idea, in my humble opinion.

Here are the details, copied verbatim from the website:



the $10,000 Elevator Pitch

Get your elevator pitch ready. If you’re selected as a finalist, you’ll only have 49 storeys to convince Matthew Corrin and our judges to award you with $10,000 to help grow your small business. Entries close June 20, 2011 at 11:59:59 pm ET.


Go http://www.visa.ca/small-business/go-biz/contest-details.jsp for the elevator pitch contest details. If you are a self-funded or start-up entrepreneur and a Canadian resident, this contest could give you the money you need to help build out your business. The exposure you’d get from participating in the contest could, at the very least, stretch your business budget by providing free PR.

Yes, the spelling of “storeys” instead of “stories” is a key give away that it’s not a U.S. contest. 

If you enter and make it to any level, please drop me a line. Good luck!
