    When a listener doesn’t understand the overall idea being presented its frustrating. How do I find my elevator pitch? How do I pitch my ideas?

    Hi @Kalyani ,

    It is important to answer in a clear, concise, and engaging way, in order to explain your idea. You should identify the key elements instead on focusing on the details.

    3 simple tips to elevate your startup pitch:

    1) Keep it short: A logline should be easy to say and easy to remember. Let’s do this with a challenge! Challenge yourself to keep it under 140 characters.

    2) Identify one thing: The one-liner should be solving a specific problem and should be easy to remember. For example: In 2008, the MacBook Air was marketed as “the world’s thinnest notebook”

    3) Stick to what you say: Every person who speaks on behalf of your company should deliver the same logline.

    A winning Pitch starts with a winning logline: one or two sentences that explain what your idea is about. Believe me! Loglines attract a lot of attention.

    Also, to influence the investors who can turn your idea into reality the pitch should be exciting enough to grab their interests and explain your idea clearly.

    Hi @Kalyani!

    I would advice you to practice your pitch conversations. If you have rehearsed in advance and have considered the many possible responses that you will encounter with each of your requests, and how will you address these responses.

    Also, take help from this article regarding elevating your pitch:
