Elevator Pitch Competition Award

Elevator Pitch 2024

Elevator Pitch Competition Award

Each year at Atlas Network’s annual Liberty Forum & Freedom Dinner, participants of Atlas Network’s Leader Lab training program compete in the John Blundell Elevator Pitch competition, which gives contestants a chance to deliver a proposition in 60 seconds or less to an eager crowd of hundreds of influencers at Liberty Forum. The live international audience votes on the spot to determine a winner who is awarded a US$1,500 prize. The competition also awards second and third place runner-ups who receive prizes of US$1,000 and US$500, respectively.
