ein sehr kurzes, aggressives Verkaufsgespräch


Explanation:
http://www.startup-tv.de/showroom/filme/mamego1.htm

"Tobias Suup von mamego (Schweden) stellt seine Geschäftsidee auf der "Upstart Europe" vor. Er hat genau 3 Minuten Zeit, die Kapitalgeber zu überzeugen"

http://www.egroups.com/message/firsttuesdaygermany-forum/144

"Diesen Monat findet in München ein 'Elevator Pitch' Wettbewerb statt. Wir möchten dazu alle Entrepreneure einladen, ob in München oder anderen Städten. Das Format ist einfach: Legen Sie Ihr Konzept (Alle Unternehmensphasen Seed+ wilkommen) in nicht mehr als 2 Minuten dar, beeindrucken Sie die Jury und beantworten Sie ein paar Fragen."

http://www.mbpw.de/online_12_kapitalforum.html

"Elevator – Pitch Manchmal haben sie 30 Sekunden, um Andere von ihrer Idee zu begeistern. Einige Gründer ergriffen die Gelegenheit um den Investoren auf dem Podium ihre Geschäftsidee vorzustellen."

A "pitch" is a "ein aggressives Verkaufsgespräch"

An "elevator pitch" is a "ein sehr kurzes, aggressives Verkaufsgespräch" 30 seconds up to 3 minutes, long enough for a ride in an elevator.

the verb "to pitch" means "zum Verkauf anbieten"
