In the short time it takes a lift to travel a few floors, could you describe your business to win over a new client, customer or investor? That's your elevator pitch.

As part of The Sales Series, content on the public blog and member only content section of Enterprise Nation to boost your selling skills, we asked Enterprise Nation to share their elevator pitches in around 50 words.

We've posted 10 of the best below to inspire you to craft one. Share your own elevator pitch in the comments.
