An elevator speech is a short statement designed to get the attention and interest of investors, potential customers, and other people important to your business. It explains in simple terms what you do, why you do it, how you’re unique, and why it’s important to the listener. this short speech should do all of that in 30 seconds or less!

For entrepreneurs, the speech should present your business in a way that gets attention and makes a listener interested enough to say, “Tell me more.”
