Testimonials

Join the ESTA Elevator Pitch today if you need to expand your business or reach new connections! The coach, Sharon Gill, was so helpful and I have been able to grow my business due to the lessons she offered during our class.

The Esports Trade Association has been a great networking partner for me. The ESTA Elevator Pitch was the perfect resource I needed to help me expand my business and tap into new connections.

I participated in the 2021 ESTA pitch competition and it was a wonderful experience. As a natural salesman I've pitched my businesses to hundreds of folks and always felt comfortable doing so. The rub is that I generally went off the cuff and didn't have a particularly polished pitch. The pitch class and the amazing Sharon Gill really helped me hone my message and get comfortable pitching a more concise and focused message to potential investors. I'd highly suggest you join in this year if you have a business that could use some cash to grow.

The EsportsNext Elevator Pitch Competition elevated my skills in pitching while understanding the major needs of investors across the world. The feedback I received from the class prior to the competition helped me polish my presentation in targeting the areas that matter. UGC has grown exponentially in funding and partnerships thanks to the Pitch Competition. I would recommend the coursework, great instructors and competition to anyone looking to elevate their pitch while gaining a deeper understanding of the esports industry's needs.

I've always been a person with a lot to say, and that meant having a hard time communicating my business to investors. Through the pitch class from ESTA, I was able to craft my message better and more concisely, and even though I didn't win the pitch competition, the practice and encouragement enabled me to improve!
