Carol Roth is a business strategist and former investment banker who has helped clients raise more than $1 billion in capital. She invites anyone to participate in The New York Times Makes Your Pitch contest.
What is interesting is to use video to draft the pitch.
"Send us your pitch on video. Tell us about your product or service, your marketing plans, your customer base. Tell us what makes your business different — why it is one to watch? Do you need capital? If so, how much and what for? Most important, how are you going to make money?", she says.
All video pitches that meet the submission guidelines will be featured on The New York Times small-business Facebook page. Plus, selected videos will be featured on the Bloss Blog.
So you must be an entrepreneur with both a strong business idea and video skills... Welcome to the new social video times!
