Please submit a 60 second pitch video in consideration for an Elevate Together cash grant. The video should include the following:

  • Introduce yourself - who are you? why are you the best person to solve this problem?
  • How do you make money?  Who are your customers? 
  • How has your business grown since you started (growth, sales, customers, etc.)? Recent success?
  • How will an Elevate Together cash grant help your business grow?
