Assignment 6.1 Elevator pitch

Purpose: Develop an elevator pitch
Task: Imagine you have a business idea for a start-up (or you are planning an event f.e. for charity or any other project you can think about). Try to convince a venture capitalist/investor that your business idea is worth investing in! Based on your analysis of the elevator pitches create a video of 30-60 seconds where you explain your idea. Put the video somewhere online and post the link.
Interaction: Watch some of the pitches and comment why you are convinced to invest in the business idea. If you are not convinced look for another elevator pitch.

    Hello everyone! I just made the video, but I am still not sure if it’s good enough – it is so hard to get to the point and explain everything in such a short time, especially when you like to talk a lot, like me! 🙂 I would probably just press the STOP button in the elevator, to get more time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDAN7UjvtXw

    Still fixed on the idea of the app and more accessible sport activities for people with special needs. Hopefully one day it won’t be only an idea and people from all over the world will take more care about each other and inclusion won’t be only a word on a paper, but a real way of coexistence.

    Would love to hear your comments and suggestions!!

    Best regards,

    Hi everyone!
    My idea is about an application which could help people in training. There are a lot of people who are very good in a type of exercise. Like in aerobic, crosfit, weightlifting, functional training, proprioceptive training and so on. If someone wants to do some of these exercises they have to pay a lot of money, they have to buy a gym pass and they have to keep track of the gym’s timetable. People who are trained to teach those kind of sports are usually not just teaching but also doing them. So my idea is to help the trainers to earn money during their workout and help those who wants to train but don’t know how to find each other.
    The application would offer the people where, when and what kind of training will the trainer do and if they want, they can join them and do the same but with more rest or with lighter weights.
    The people can chose between the trainers and of course they can rate them. They have to upload the money on the app and depends on which trainer and how long training they applied for, the application send the money to the trainer.
    The trainers have to be qualified. If they want to earn money they have to be nice and helpful otherwise their rating will bed so no one will chose them.
    It is not personal training it is training with a partner which is good for both of them.

    Regards,
    Matyas

    Hi,
    my pitch is the following: Hi, do you want to support talented young stars? We have an exchange program for youth athletes, to high-level clubs. To get more experience, some of the best competitors can travel to a foreign country, and train in an other club. Both clubs and trainers can see new ideas, and the athlete can focus on his development. We believe, that everybody has to be able to make the decision, not depending on the financial capacity. Do you want to support this future stars to? Please stay in contact with our team!

    My elevator pitch:
    Hello my name is Vid Persak. There is many many young kids included in different sports. But my idea is to organize the afternoon exercises for kids that would include many different sports depending on a time of a year. With this I would like to give them a wider aspect of sport so they can continue their sport careers in any kind of sport. Cause I gained many different sport experiences during my college I know I can cover this wide aspect in sport. Nowadays parents don’t have time to learn them kids all those sports so I would advertise myself trough this aspect.

      Dear Lizz,

      very well elaborated Elevator pitch! You have used the techniques and important elements which are recommended in a very good way.

      More over, you brought forward good thought-through arguments for your idea, which could be very interesting for your target group, especially healthy and motivated employees but saving costs as well.

      Additionally and maybe the most important thing, you adress emotions when talking of the magical power of sport … :-).

      Very good indeed!

      Good luck with your idea!

    The problem that I want to solve, is that women who are engaged in sports forget that they are women. Society also does not perceive them as beautiful women, but simply as athletes. I want to show the beauty of female athletes. I want society to know its stars. Every sport, every winner must be recognizable. In our country, the problem is that people do not know their champions. Only the Olympians are known. But I want to collect all the important athletes of the country, coaches, veterans and make a beautiful photo shoot. Every woman is beautiful, but if this woman is an athlete, then she is worthy of respect in a greater degree. These photos I want to put in the calendar or make collections of clothes or dishes and sell to ordinary people so that they know the pride of our country in person. Money from these products will go to finance sports.
    And let each house have a cup with a beautiful woman athlete.

    My Elevator pitch project:

    – A sports club for all people in the city of Budapest.

    – Name: BudapeSporT

    – We would search for a lot of great sponsors. They give us some money, and they can promote themselves through our club.

    – The sponsors would be great names (Samsung, Powerade, Huawei, etc.).

    – Every member of our club could use the service of the sponsors for a cheaper price.

    For example:
    Our sponsor would be the public transport company of the state/ city of Budapest. Every member of our club could have a free monthly pass from them (or for a much cheaper price)

    This way (I think) we could inspirate a lot of people to do sports!

    In Hungary lot of people don’t do sport because of the prices. With this project people not only would do sports, but they are getting in connection with sponsors, they use their products.

    It would be good not only for the sportslife, the health of the citizens, but for the economy and for the companies too.

    Hi,
    Sorry, I wasn’t able to make a video and put it on the internet, but I’ll write down my idea.
    My idea is to organize a sports day in several towns in my country. The day would include team and individual sports, competitive sports and hobby sports as well outdoor and indoor sports. There could be specialized places where mainly for children, joungsters, adults and elderly sports were. Of course, there would be stations for families and for health. As there would be outdoor sports as well, the best time of the year is the summer for the event. On the other hand, that way the winter sports couldn’t be showned, but in the winter time we can organize a smaller event with ice skating, ski-running and the possible winter sports the places given.
    By this event, we can motivate people to do sports and live a better, healthier life.

    Hi,

    Honestly I didn’t find my perfect business idea yet so I decided to write about one of my previous idea that I wrote in Atletyc Mooc.
    It is about a running event organiser enterprise which provide sightseeing running events in Budapest. My elevator pitch:
    Hi, Do you want to visit Budapest in an active and healthy way? In Budapest there are just a few opportunity to go for a sightseeing run. My goal is to provide sightseeing runs in Budapest. My competitors are mainly giving personal tours but my idea to do it for bigger groups in a bit cheaper price. My unique service would be the run+picnics event which contain healthy food in the end of the activity. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable run where people can make new friends.

      Dear Ágoston,

      I like your idea very much. As more and more people run, your idea would probably be interesting to them. Also other participants of this MOOC have similar ideas.

      Try to make an Elevator pitch once you find time to elaborate the specifics of your business idea in order to gain uniqueness of your project.

    I think tennis can be available not only for athletes or tennis lovers, but also for the elderly and even the disabled people. This video is about a girl with cerebral paralysis. Her tennis is not only physical exercise, but also socialization. Entrepreneurs could support such trainings sessions because of the need for special tools and coaching for coaches.

      Dear Tomas,

      it is an excellent idea from you to try to enlarge the experience of playing tennis to different groups of people who are disadvantaged or not so fit any more.

    Sorry for beeing late, but i wasnt able to reach deathline.

    So for my elevator pitch i would like to present my idea how to include preschool kids into sports recreation program in early ages. These days a lot of kids spend their free time in front of TV, computer or some kind of mobile device. Our plan is to present them fun and enjoyment in sports and other activities. We would show their parents how can inactivity in early stages of kids life, have bad effect on them in youth ages. Kids will grow up in independent healty individuals with sports in their lifes.

    Hi everyone,
    I’m sorry, but I can’t record a video so, I wrote my idea.
    Firstly, I would like to say that i am very pleased about the information that i received from this course. My elevator pitch would be about coaching school as i mentioned post before. I think there are a lot of talented young people lives in Turkey and they need really good coaches in soccer. If the coaches know how to train a young talened football player then the footballer could be grow up. If i had a chance to tell a investor my idea it is about football coaches and young talented footballers.

    My project wants to help all athletes to reach their higher level of performance giving them access to the most professional recovery-, rehab- and (home-)therapyequipment. There are tons of great ways to make the body recover faster from hard training sessions or accelerate the healing process after injuries. But how many athletes in the world can afford expensive therapy-equipment and -tools? Not many and often it does not pay off to buy a special device if you need it to recover from one particular injury for example and need it just for a certain time. Moreover, not everyone can afford massage-therapists each and every day and most of the recovery-, rehab- and therapyequipment that are being used in professional Sports Instituts are really expensive so almost no individual athlete can buy them just for himself.
    The sharing-platform “SHAREcovery” should help athletes to get cheap and fast access to therapy-equipment that they can use at home on a daily basis. My idea focuses on athletes in any sports who want to take use of the recovery-methods that usually just the very best elite-athletes in the world have. Unique about this project is that “SHAREcovery” owns all these high-end-equipments and athletes can rent them for a certain amount of time. So from now on every athlete can recover like the best athletes in the world!

    1. Elizabeta

      Dear Carina,

      this is an interesting idea. Your project will need a lot of financial resources for buying the equipment to offer such a service.

      Do you know if such a service is already offered somewhere? This information could help you to analyse the market and the prerequisites.

      I wish you all the best with “SHAREcovery”!

    As already mentioned before in previous assignments I would like to initiate a boxing exercises in the schools during physical education lesson. In Lithuania usually, schools and gymnasiums have 2 physical training lessons per week. One lesson could be boxing lo learn basic boxing skills and techniques. This would help children to develop better physical condition, self-confidence and good discipline, also this is good way to learn self-defense especially for the girls, and use boxing knowledge wisely. This I would like to do first in one school as a pilot for the one semester, to check the concept of this idea. Also, this would be a real case study to show and promote for the other schools to attract their attention.

    I want to create a new mobile app. In the beginning to should work only in my country. The main idea is that you have city map and there you can see colour dots. These dots means different kinds of sports. So its easy to find what kind of sport you want to do and where is this place. i think its a really good idea which can help unite clubs and sports. Because much more people can find information just with using this app. You just open a map and see a dot close to you. So of course you are excited to see what kind of sport you can do there. i think it can grow very fast and can be very popular app. Maybe even world wide.

    Hello my elevator pitch – I want to create a modern wrestling outfit brand for the gym and daily use and start selling it online over online shop, no age restrictions. It will be designed for men women and children. This would help not only generate revenue. Clothes will be delivered by express mail service.

    This will generate money and will be good promotion of the wrestling sport in general and potentially attract people to this sport if not like a sportsmen’s but like spectators.

    Hy, i have some technical issues so I wrote down my elevator pitch instead of filming it. It’s about the idea of green roofs and getting more green surfaces in cities.

    The world is dying.
    There is less and less green surfaces in cities and everywhere across the world. Do you know that every day approximately 200m2 of forests disappear? Can you imagine what that number would be if we added all the green surfaces we lose with building houses, flats etc?

    But we can do something about that! There is an elegant solution to give something back to nature. What if we would put green surface from the ground where we built a house or a flat, and just put it on the roof? That way we got new building and we gave something back to nature. We could present this idea to all the major cities in Slovenia and Europe. That way we still keep plants and get some fresh air. Of course, there are problems with roofs, you cant just plant a tree on a top of a building, but grass and a bit of small plants maybe even vegetables is a whole new story.
    Think about that next time you see building being built.

    The long term goal of this firm will be providing competitions round the year, as presently very limited are there and these are also with no monetary help for Athletes.

    My town organises the triathlon word cup on every summer and it is really good for the city because it lats for a week and every day has a special sports events .(For free) For example running, swimming, biking, 1/3 marathon etc. I think it is cool because usually more than 1500 people are involved. My idea came from this event. I would like to do this kind of sports event, two times in one months, on every saturday. A little “move the city” events. I think people would love this because they can join their families company and spend a quality time together.

    My elevator pitch would be like this:
    „I love trailrunning, but also travelling. I want to explore foreign countries by trailrunning, but I don’t want to run alone. And there is no organisation which offers trailrunning journeys in groups. That’s why I want to offer travels which combine trailrunning and sightseeing. It’s no race, you will run together in a group about maximum 20 peoples. You should be able to run 30 to 40 kilometers and about 2000 meters in altitude per day, over one week. You will always run from one place to another, so a lugage transport will be organized. Are you interested? You will be able to book the whole journey on an online platform.“

    Hello, I’m sorry but I’m sick and I have sore throat so I can’t record a video, but here’s my idea:
    In Hungary too few people do sports and I think it’s a big problem. I think the need for sport should be created. My idea is to focus on children because if the younger generations will start getting doing sport and love it they will do it as an adult/parent too. And a child can easier start a sport than an adult. Until they young the aim is to enjoy it and keep them in the sport.
    I would like to orgainse sportdays for children. Here’s the winter so I’d like to start with wintersports. (Skate, Ice hockey, ec.tc.) I’d need supports of different sportclubs. I think if children try many kind of sports they will find one what they want to do regularly. It’s also good to the sportclub if they let the children to try sport there for free because probably some children will like that and they will enroll for training there.

      Dear Kinga,

      a promising idea! Sport days for children are for sure necessary everywhere today. Where would you organise them? In schools or already kinder garten?

      Your idea is excellent for pitching. So I would advise also you to try to think of an elevator pitch once when you have time. It is a very good tool to think about unique and important elements of your project.

      Good luck with your idea!

    Hello,
    Alex and I have the idea of doing our next “summer preparation” different. For snowboarding – in summer – we normally train at one location only, every year the same. We think that it is possible to train everywhere. Therefore we want to rent a mobile home and travel around Europe. We want to visit successful sportswomen and sportsmen and gain knowledge from them. Interviewing them, should help us to find out, how it is possible to get that successful.
    We have already recorded a clip in the past two weeks which we want to use for our advertisement needs. That’s the reason why the clip is in German. I hope it is okay.

      Dear Sabine, dear Alex,

      these seem to be very joyful plans for the next summer :-). Combining work with fun is always a good idea and often promise success!

      I like your clip and it could pass as an Elevator pitch. You will probably share it also with the people you want to meet on your “training trip” ;-).

      I like the idea to share your experience in a blog with all of us. You will certainly have my attention!

      I wish you good luck with your project 2018! And I am looking forward to following your blog!

      Bye,
      Elizabeta

    My plan for a company is a mental coaching group or management. This would be an elit looking place where clients could feel that they are in the right position to develop their mental skills and facilities. In my opinion in all aspects of life head is the first and all the other parts come after it. Firstly I would try with my friends who are in a bad mental health and try to help them with my thinking to change theirs. Secondly I would make some advertisements on the internet and start a new Instagram page to show a little about my work and there I would give some informations about the place where they could come and change their thinking and their life.

    If you are in a good mental shape then you are able to do big things and make your dream come true!

    My elevator pitch would be like
    “Hi, do you find interesting to multiply your investment by 10 times in 5 year period. I know you doubt but let me be honest, numbers do not lie. Idea is to develop a web platform for construction market and construction companies. Construction companies are facing difficulties when construction deadline approaches, lack of staff, building material and they pay prices which are higher than usual. Basically, idea is to invest in web provider which can be used to feature al the necessary information, possible advices and sharing information with other companies”. This will provide a fast selling and buying options.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t record a video. I write about my idea.
    I would like to open a massage/ sports massage salon. It would be good, because there isn’t such possibility for people in many little or medium size town. Some people and children do sports. They don’t heed for their muscle and they don’t stretch so they often suffer with different pains for example backache, waist ache, muscle pain… and sometimes they hurt during the sport.
    In my opinion more sports injures would be prevented if they could go to the salon and a good qualified sport-massager makes a massage once a week.
    I think after some advertisement in the local newspaper and the local tv and radio channel all time would be full. A lot of people enjoy the pleasure of massage. They will be happier and looser. They regularly visit this salon, it would be very profitable.

      Dear Kristóf,

      your idea is interesting. I think you should try to offer your service in cooperation with sport clubs or an sport facility. And then emphasize the professional “sport massage” in order to prevent injuries or pain of amateur athletes.

      This could also be an addition to the existing supporting team every professional athlete has already nowadays.

      Try to use and develop an elevator pitch for presenting your idea to the target group. You will see, it helps to find the unique selling proposition and it is fun :-).

      All the best,
      Elizabeta

    Hello guys,

    Ufortunately, I am not in the situation to record a video, however I can summary my idea below.

    1. My idea is an app for football fans (Ultras) which can make easier the information flow between them.
    2. It would be usefull because, I experienced that sometimes the Ultras of the national football team/ football teams do not have enough information about the whole event. and they separated into small groups, they can’t find the rallying point, misanderstanding something.
    3.As I plan in my app would take in all the registrated Ultra groups and you can choose yours when you log into it,
    and in another tab you can get information about the national team. Each tab you can see the events, clothes, songs, how can you buy tickets, travel informations, rallying point, phone number and email adress of the organiser ot the rally, and a chat room where the supporters can change their opinions, ask questions etc. You can also order from the application the merch of your team or other Ultras groups products.
    It would be an app to unit the supporters whom want to be a part of a team.

    Hy everyone!
    I am very pleased to say how many information I received through this course. I finally learned what is elevator pitch as well and I hope one day I have the opportunity to meet with great personalities who will be interested and will invest in my business, but I also need the power to convince them. What I want to do, one of my ideas I have already reminded you in one of my recent post, but I still have one. Unfortunately, this business does not seem to bring money, but to be realistic is more of a humanitarian thing. There are many talented and smart children in this country who, unfortunately, do not have the chance to practice a sport because of their standard of living. This seems to be a foundation that aims to finance studies and to provide the conditions for achieving the results. Let’s not forget that these poor children, who have smart mind and talent can become doctors, engineers or olympics champion tomorrow. Let’s find them and give them the chance of a better life.

For four year we will rich medals in europien and world chamopionships and we will have minimum 100 children in our club. In the begining we need a gym for 5 days per week minimum 2hours and we need some stuffs like tatami taht where we fight some gloves.

    I hope you can helf me in that new project.

    Thanks your attention

      Dear Roland,

      your text is very convincing. I totally agree with you that this new group is necessary for the club Budapest Honvéd. If you are so good in that sport you will have a great future! To gain 100 children in 4 years is a great goal.

      I think you have a very good Pitch, you explain the most important facts in a short time, well done!

      What I would just like to advise you is to think about a new ending. Try to find an interesting dynamic end, a statement or a question that piques the interest to want to hear more.

    Hello
    Sorry, but now I’m not able to record a video, but I would write to you about my idea.
    “Hello, my name is Azur Omar, I want to present you something if you have a minute of time for me. Namely, I would like to present to you a very suitable invention, with which your company would benefit. It’s about ” Online nutritionism ” is an excellent system for recreational athletes and professional athletes. A very small number of athletes knows how much the nutrition has, so this web site would have an educational character, the improvement of the knowledge gained so far about nutrition. A company that would invest in my online nutrition project would naturally benefit from it, one way is commercial advertising, and each employee would get a nutrition plan and program for him / her for the desired activities, of course the employees who would like it. I think this project would help a lot of athletes and recreational players, and I think that this project has a good future. Thank you for your attention and time.”

      Hi Azur Omar,

      nutrition is a huge topic. I think that there are a lot of business opportunities in this field. Your idea regarding the cooperation with companies and to offer your services to their employees is interesting. I think this could be a good business model.

      To better elaborate details of your business plan and to be able to present the unique selling proposition of your project fast, try to develop an elevator pitch some other time. It will help you to recognize important facts and emphasize them quickly.

      Good luck!

    I want to show you the project. There are a lot of people who can’t do enough sport activities because of the work, money, time and other stuffs. The results of this situation are the obesity, illnesses etc. My idea to make sport days, every weekend for the families. Everyday would have a topic like running, football, basketball etc. They would get a tea and a chocolate bar after the exercises or smg. We should move the biggest bunch of people. It would be free for them and we get the financial part from the sponsors, from the commercials.

    I am really sorry, but I cannot record a video now, but I can write something about my idea – startup.

    I plan to create an event that will motivate parents to engage their children in sport. Also, I will make special project for children with special needs because of inclusion every child in sport and social surrounding. Also, I want to connect and teach kids through sport how to love and help each other. Sport is the best preventively medium for health of our kids, and also it helps them to gain health habits which will be very helpful for them in future.

    I will need support of my town, so I will write to competent authorities. If they give me financial help, I will be able to secure that event, to pay helpers and also buy some gifts for all those kids.

It will help you to concentrate on important facts regarding your business idea. And you will practice how to convince somebody in very short time.

    I’m not in a position to shoot you a video now, maybe next time, sorry for that, but in exchange for that I’m sending you a written assignment !! Hi, my name is Amar, I want to show you the project. We have a problem in the world, people are not active in sports. Because of this we have a large number of people with overweight, which can cause many illnesses. As a solution I’ve made a fitness application plan. So it’s designed to be easy to use to all people. It’s mostly about a large number of bodyweight exercises that can be realized at any place and at any time without the equipment. Also this fit.app would track your activity during the day and motivate people to continue with good results. Realizing this project would get active citizenship. You do not have to belive what someone told you, this sentence means a lot, thank you !!

      However there are many fitness apps already in the market. So it would be especially important to think about what is the innovative and new about your app that is different from the others?

      What additional value does your project provide? What is the unique selling proposition off your app? Who is your special target group?

      Try to elaborate your idea further.

    A very good work, indeed.

    You have followed thoroughly the suggestions for developing an Elevator pitch. The pitch is not
    longer than a minute, you start with an interesting question and you have a dynamic end.

    Your pitch flows so well, I have to ask, are you a natural talent or how long have you practiced?

    And of course, I think the content of you idea is innovative and trend-setting.

    I made a prototype Video for an event which idea was born in spring. After this course I feel confidence to start this project.
    The “Day of the Coaches” is a further education event for people interested and working in sports.
    This is a prototype – I will go to the olympics in Pyeong Chang and plan to do a new video there with better surroundings. Maybe infant of the olympic rings or something like that. It will get more professional but I really want to no what you think about the basic idea of this video.
