Lufthansa launches ‘Elevator Pitch’ contest
Lufthansa has launched ‘Elevator Pitch’, an extraordinary contest offering start-up entrepreneurs an opportunity to make a three-minute business pitch at Start-up Expo 2018, powered by Lufthansa India and the Delhi-NCR Chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE). The winner will get a sponsored seat in a business program at Cambridge University, a Lufthansa Business Class ticket to Europe as well as coveted TiE Delhi-NCR mentorship.
Registration is now open for the contest. Start-up entrepreneurs are invited to apply online at www.lufthansastartupexpo.in by September 15, 2018. This will be followed by two rounds of shortlisting by the best business minds. Selected participants will make an elevator pitch to the jury in each round and the finalists will receive mentoring to further sharpen their pitch before the Grand Finale.
The contest will culminate at the Start-Up Expo on October 6, 2018 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The top four contestants will make a live elevator pitch at the Expo, where an eminent jury – comprising business experts, investors and senior government dignitaries – will announce the winner.
“Young entrepreneurs in India are saying yes to dreams as they explore new opportunities. At Lufthansa, we feel privileged to help them say yes to success,” said Wolfgang Will, senior director, South Asia, Lufthansa Group Airlines. The Elevator Pitch contest is an extension of Lufthansa’s new #SayYesToTheWorld campaign, which celebrates the zest to discover the world.
Lufthansa has joined hands with TiE Delhi-NCR to co-host the Start-Up Expo for the past three years. It is now recognised as India’s largest ecosystem for start-up success. The unique one-day convention offers new entrepreneurs all that they need to succeed – free of cost!
