    Elevator pitch Elevator pitch Presentation Transcript

    • The Elevator Pitch Wanna start up? Take a ride with us Idea and concept (specific to this execution) – Rodinhood.com August 2010
    • The Concept
      • The elevator pitch is a metaphor that implies ‘make a impactful pitch - fast and crisp’
      • Conceptually it means that if you were put in a real elevator with a VC and went up say 15 floors, by the time she and you got off, you have got yourself funded.
      • The concept forces entrepreneurs to really make their story very tight and compelling and in that process introspect their story.
      • See – video of the same idea (USA)
    • What I want to do
      • Stuff an entrepreneurs and a VC in an real elevator as often as possible.
      • Get the entrepreneur to pitch to the VC in that elevator for 3 minutes.
      • Post the ride, get a 2 minute feedback from the VC and entrepreneur on the experience.
    • Why do I want to do this?
      • As an entrepreneur, I believe that there should be an always ‘on’ platform for budding entrepreneurs to make pitches and for VC to review them.
      • The process helps newbie entrepreneurs sharpen their presentation skills and also their confidence .
      • Hope that this actually leads to incubation and funding stories.
      • Allow VCs not active in India to get a nice crisp view of the flavor of entrepreneur aspirations and pitch flow in India.
    • Treatment & Hosting
      • Hand held – web cam look that is slick yet not overtly professional.
      • The videos get hosted on my blog – http://rodinhood.com that is about start up’s and entrepreneurship.
      • Visitors can comment, ask questions and even submit their entries.
      • VC can also give feedback.
    • Commerce?
      • I have no business model behind this yet
      • Over a period of time, maybe attract sponsors and VC’s who could pay for production.
      • Take a success fees for deal closed  as equity
    • What I need
      • Is someone who can help produce this content for me:
        • Creating the set
        • Shooting the content
        • Editing
        • Helping in finishing, packaging etc
      • It would be great to entertain a business partner in this venture rather than just a producer, but I am open to all kinds of proposals!
