Trends in Ed: Elevator Pitch? Nah…Ski Pitch!

| March 23, 2011

We all enjoyed watching and discussing the Elevator Pitch videos on Vialogues . In today’s Trends in Ed, I want to report about How One Group of Startups and Investors Traded the Elevator Pitch for the Ski Lift.

Peak Pitch is “a mashup of a day of spring skiing with the elevator pitch / traditional venture business plan competition”. Investors and entrepreneurs get paired up and the pitch happens as they ski down different hills located in exclusive resorts.

What do you think? Would you rather be bothered by your potential investor checking his/her Blackberry while you pitch your dream business or ski down a mountain explaining your pitch from the top of your lungs?
