Check out episode three of the new season of Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch. In each episode of the show, entrepreneurs are challenged to step into an elevator and pitch their business on camera to a board of investors in 60 seconds or less. If the investors like what they hear, the elevator doors open to reveal the boardroom, and contestants have the chance to walk away with life-changing funding, mentorship from the smartest minds in business and a personal and brand-defining moment.

Who wins, and who gets sent down?

Sometimes it's good to push back hard at doubtful investors to win them over. Other times? Not so much. In this episode, three entrepreneurs walk out with amazing deals, and two don't get so lucky. Is it their product? Their pitch? Their personalities? Watch to see what went right and what went wrong.
