Pitch participants in the podcast on the topic: challenge short pitch

We interviewed the pitch participants in advance.

We wanted to know what the challenges are in a live pitch, even if it is only allowed to be 3-4 minutes long. What is the focus? What is important to keep in mind? And of course topics like excitement, anticipation and much more.
