Ventureast announces '1-min Pitch Challenge' for entrepreneurs

Venture capital institution, Ventureast, on Friday announced the '1-min Pitch Challenge', an elevator pitch opportunity targeted at early-stage start-ups.

To participate, entrepreneurs need to send in their elevator pitch that captures the uniqueness of their business venture in a 60-second video. The best entries will be invited for an exclusive mentoring session with Ventureast and will get a chance to qualify for the Startup Launch at UnPlugged 2016, a startup event scheduled to be held in May in Bengaluru, where they get to pitch to a group of investors.

In the 1-min pitch video, the entrepreneur should essentially identify the problem, present the solution, targets achieved, and plan of action. The startup must be post-MVP (minimum viable product) or an early-stage business with market traction.
