A great elevator pitch could be the thing that launches your startup from obscure garage-based business to a fully-funded market-busting machine. It's a precious few minutes where you have the undivided attention of your dream investor, and he or she is interested in hearing about your business. So you probably want to perfect it before you run into them. Unfortunately, the elevator pitch presents a few obstacles that bring down many entrepreneurs. Rambling, adding in pointless information, and being boring are just a few common sins entrepreneurs commit. And they're not going to get you anywhere with a wizened investor who's already heard hundreds of pitches.
