Get your 60 second elevator pitch ready!

2009 May 19

60-Seconds is a new website that has just been launched for South African entrepreneurs. It basically works on the elevator pitch format, you have 60 seconds to pitch your business and sell it. If VC’s are interested they can then choose to contact you for further details.

The website lets you upload video and create a profile, and registration is quick and painless. I welcome any initiative that aims to assist entrepreneurs, and hopefully we see some success stories coming out of this! So entrepreneurs, get cracking. I am not certain if this is ONLY for South African entrepreneurs, or any African entrepreneur.

The funding partners include Hasso Plattner Ventures & Spier Green Capital.

The project is also supported by the Bandwidth Barn, The business place and Cape Venture parnters.

P.s if you do not have access to a video camera to record your pitch and if you are based in Johannesburg, we can assist you with this, just contact us.
