One of the questions we ask on the entry form is to create an elevator pitch. In an elevator pitch you try to convince a potential investor of your business plan in the time your shared elevator ride would last. If you are a driven social entrepreneur, your goal is to make your dream come true. To make that happen, you will need backup. Financial, but also creative and inspirational backup. Whether you are entering the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge or not, you will have to pitch your business plan thousands of times if you are looking for investors. So here is your chance to work on that pitch. Good luck!
