Booktrope’s Katherine Sears on The Elevator Pitch

We’re back for another episode of The Elevator Pitch, the show where entrepreneurs pitch their business plans in the 43 seconds it takes to ride to the top of Seattle’s iconic Space Needle.

In this episode, we hear from Katherine Sears of Booktrope, a Seattle startup that’s attempting to transform the way authors publish books.

Did we like it? Well, let’s just say the judges, once again, were split. Find out in the show below whether we kept Sears around for the final rounds, or sent her to the ground to work on the business so more.

Joining me on the judging panel: GeekWire Chief Business Officer Rebecca Lovell and Madrona Venture Group’s Greg Gottesman. Enjoy!!

So, what do you think? Did we make the right choice? Cast your ballot here:

Here are the first installments of the Elevator Pitch, featuring PetHub founder Tom ArnoldMannequin founder Prashant Sridharan; Frameable founder Nick White and Pikaba founder Dmitry Balin.

Stay tuned for more episodes of the Elevator Pitch. A big thanks to Lift Digital and the Space Needle for helping to make the show possible.
