his robotic version, the entire salad bar is enclosed by a glass shield. A robotic arm picks up your dish and by pushing buttons you can go down the line and get exactly the salad that you want as the robotic arms fill your dish with whatever you select.
These entrepreneurs were hoping to use their minute in the spotlight to persuade potential investors in the crowd to consider pushing money in their direction. The concept is meant to parallel the situation in which an entrepreneur is lucky enough to be alone in an elevator of a tall building with a potential funder. By the time the funder gets off on his floor, he must be persuaded to meet with the entrepreneur to learn more and talk about an investment.

Enter the Robotic Salad Bar I kid you not one of the creative ideas I recently saw at Enterprise Forum Pittsburgh's elevator pitch session. If you're not familiar with the world of elevator pitches, I'll attempt to enlighten you in 60 seconds or less because that's how long Uday Roy had to present his entire salad bar concept to a panel of four and 100 additional people filling the room to hear business ideas from Mr. Roy, of Deming Systems, and a dozen other entrepreneurial hopefuls.
