EC teaches would-be entrepreneurs to pitch ideas to investors

Anyone with a potentially successful business plan is being encouraged to sign up for the ‘Elevator Pitch’ programme before February 21. Backed by the European Commission, it promises training for would-be entrepreneurs that will leave them able to “pitch their ideas to an investor in just two minutes”. The two highest performers will win €5,000 each. For more information, visit www.bolsadoempreendedorismo.pt
