I am excited to share some fabulous students who worked so hard on their business this semester and we just could not just let it end with the loss of face to face contact in school. So, we found a way to learn how to do a good “elevator pitch practice” online using the great tool called Flipgrid.com. It has saved the day with a tool made just for this purpose it seems.
Students used this tool to pitch their business idea and then I invited guests to view the student pitches so they could encourage, give advice, tips and provide feedback to the students on giving a second round pitch. When we were finished with the pitch practice we turned to Zoom to actually give real time live pitches to entrepreneurs who were waiting in a Zoom session to listen to some amazing pitches.
