The Art of the Elevator Pitch

In partnership with the UAlbany Alumni Association

Thirty seconds may be all the time you have to get the attention and curiosity of an investor or prospective customer. This means you must be able to describe what customers you serve, the problem those customers have, and the solution your product provides.
