Wikipedia: An elevator pitch, … is a short summary used to quickly and simply define a process, product, service, organization, or event and its value proposition. The name “elevator pitch” reflects the idea that it should be possible to deliver the summary in the time span of an elevator ride, or approximately thirty seconds to two minutes.

Please note: These projects were built in Flash that is no longer supported by Adobe or most modern browsers.  We have made a short video from the flash animations – there are three flash animations in the video.

Elevator Pitches: The term itself comes from a scenario of an accidental meeting with someone important in the elevator. If the conversation inside the elevator in those few seconds is interesting and value adding, the conversation will either continue after the elevator ride, or end in exchange of business cards or a scheduled meeting.
