“Elevator pitch” is a very short, no-nonsense, summary of your idea, activity or proposal to a VIP (very important person like media, investor, president, CEO, etc.) usually presented when you catch that person on the elevator ride, or in similar situation. After the pitch they may invite you for the longer talk where you give them one page “executive summary”.
