The more knowledgeable you are about your business model, industry and your target market, the more prepared you are to execute a successful strategy for success. Knowledge is power and will help build your confidence in both your business idea and your elevator pitch.

2. Be customer-centric.

Create an innovative organization that solves a problem for consumers. These are the companies of the future.

Prepare yourself by practicing your pitches in front of a mentor who can give you honest feedback. The more you practice and gain momentum, the more you will build your confidence over time.
