GoPitch – Pitch To the World

GoPitch – Pitch To the World
http://gopitch.co/

If you can’t explain what you do to someone, things get difficult. People like me have a challenging time explaining our big visions and ideas, but we’re good at receiving feedback and iterating to improve. Using GoPitch should get you feedback, exposure, and fresh looks on your concept. Why only 35 seconds? People are busy, and being concise is hard (something I learned after having to compress my life into 140 characters). Hard things are usually important. Did I mention people are busy?
