(cross posted from pitchpractice.us)

This week we had five startups deliver their 30-second, 3-minute, and 5-minute pitches.  We are now all set up in Conference Room 500-1 on the 5th floor of Atlanta Tech Village, so you can get your belly full at #StartupChowdown and then just walk a few feet over to Pitch Practice.  

Here’s who pitched today.

  • c|d8a – crowd sourced data entry for commercial construction lending
  • UXMentors – 501(c)(3) non profit mentor group to teach UX to college students
  • Garagistry – social & professional network for classic car owners, investors, services
  • InstaPitch – location based advertising for small businesses
  • Allicay Health – online marketplace for hospitals to find the best medical coding pros
  • VoxelVerse – 3D software creation tools for you and me

Here again are the guidelines for 30-second, 3-minute, and 5-minute pitches, as outlined by the folks at Pitch Gauntlet.

  • 30-second Elevator Pitch – Who, what, why, how? Quickly express the value of your concept. The goal is to get to the next meeting. Once you’ve mastered this you can move to the next stage.
  • 3-Minute Presentation – Use a slide deck and deliver a compelling story Explain your business. Who’s your customer? What problem do you solve? How do you make money? Get this right and then move to the next stage.
  • 6-Minute Presentation – The long form pitch. Be ready for the big time. Go into more detail about how your business operates. Perfect this and you’re ready for investor meetings.
