SPEED PITCHING : An interesting concept

18th July,2008 [i.e tomorrow] would be a memorable day for Vijay Anand and the team behind Proto since, it will be the first time that close to 500+ enthusiasts would be present at the event. Kudos to the organizers of this wonderful COMMUNITY event !!! And guess what, I would be missing all the fun and most of all the Live Blogging competition sad

We have come across Speed Dating and Elevator Pitches but wouldn't it be exciting to see a bunch of entrepreneurs in a room pitching their ideas to investors in just 7 minutes[also termed as Speed Pitching].Makes me remember of the days where there would be panel of interviewers interviewing a bunch of guys in a single room wink. Check out Speed Pitching in action below.You can know more about Speed Pitching & Funding Universe [the ideators of Speed Pitching] here & here



Just a Thought:
Though Speed Pitching is not a novel concept, it can be something that can be turned into a Mini-Proto !!! The only drawback being "Speed Pitching does not involve wannabe-preneurs, so does not help much in building a BETTER ecosystem, which Proto does very well !!!"

These are my thoughts on Speed Pitching and would like to hear "WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE ENTIRE CONCEPT".

Himanshu,
After checking your post on Proto, I feel that Proto and Speed Pitching are common and not at all different.

Hey,
@Anonymous:
Thanks for the comment.Sure, Speed Pitching and Proto are closely related, but the CLOSE DOOR POLICY is what differentiates both of them.

The 7 minutes concept on a round table is quite interesting which gave rise to this article :)
