Here’s a selection of crowd-pleasing elevator pitches from years past.
Sagar Pilania ’12 and Sumit Suman ’11 earned a 2011 Audience Favorite award for a device placed inside a toilet that tells the user via text message when she ovulates so that she can increase her odds of getting pregnant.
David McCreery ’10 earned the Most Outrageous Elevator Pitch award in 2009 for this social network that is similar to Facebook — except for cats. The site would be supported by the sale of merchandise that cat owners can emblazon with their feline’s image.
Adam Birnbaum ’08, Nir Bruner, and Sonja Kosman ’08 earned the Most Outrageous Video award in 2008 for their idea for a drug designed to temporarily stop sexual arousal by halting the production of pheromones.
