CU Denver Elevator Pitches



What is an elevator pitch?

An elevator pitch is a short (30-90 second) description of your scholarly work.  


Why should I make an elevator pitch?

We are collecting pitches to create a repository of short, accessible snapshots of research and creative activities at CU Denver.  This can be used to promote research to the public, recruit majors and research assistants, be embedded into websites or social media posts, and much more.  Some video pitches will also be used to support communication training sessions for CU Denver undergraduates and graduate students engaged in research and creative activities.
