Pitchstagram: Pitch us your startup in 15 seconds or less

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

With the launch of video on Instagram, we thought we’d have a little fun.

Pitch us your startup in 15 seconds or less with an Instagram video. It might be great practice for refining your elevator pitch. (I did one for fun.)

Be as creative as you like. Talk to us, use graphics, stop motion, whatever you can do with video. Use the hashtag #pitchstagram and post a link to your video in the comments below.

We’ll pick a few of our favorites and include them in an upcoming VentureBeat post.

Who knows, we might even use some as bumpers for the MobileBeat conference in San Francisco on July 9th and 10th.

We're studying digital marketing compensation: how much companies pay CMOs, CDOs, VPs of marketing, and more, with ChiefDigitalOfficer. Help us out by filling out the survey, and we'll share the results with you.
