Sisterhood of the Dreaded Elevator Pitch

by Jillian Scannell

Women work on elevator pitch worksheets at an event


Last week, Vermont Works for Women joined Mercy Connections, Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity, and Center for Women & Enterprise to host Sisterhood of the Dreaded Elevator Pitch in Winooski.

Small business owners participated in an interactive workshop that guided them in creating an authentic “elevator pitch.” Folks had the opportunity to practice their pitch in a supportive environment and network with one another.
