This episode starts off with a strong pitch from Sara Rose, co-founder of healthcare startup Tribecan. Rose showcases her long history within her niche, her business expertise and her willingness to negotiate. This last aspect is particularly noticeable for the judges when Rose asks for a $75,000 investment without specifying her company’s valuation. 

This episode begins with Josh Stramiello of Fixe Food, who previously appeared on Season 4 of Elevator Pitch but, as he admits, “didn’t really do the best job.” This time, it’s clear he’s been practicing his pitch, as he delivers a concise and compelling 60-second introduction to his tech-based food-delivery service. It’s enough to get him inside the boardroom, but will it be enough to earn an investment?

Samella Watson of vacation rental service My-Cierge starts with a disadvantage: Judge Peter Goldberg is already an investor in a related business, and he cites early on that he would view this company as a conflict of interest. That leaves Watson with only three out of four possible judges. Will any of them bite after her elevator pitch?
