Power Pitch Teams Up With Yahoo!

The Power Pitch:

The Power Pitch is a weekly series on CNBC's Power Lunch featuring CEOs and founders of some of the most cutting-edge, early stage start-ups in the world. It's a fast-paced 5-minute window into the mind of entrepreneurs, with bold ideas and big dreams to pioneer change.

This year CNBC is teaming up with Yahoo! Finance to showcase the next generation of innovation.

Each segment starts with an exclusive, web only look as the executives get ready to make their one minute "Power Pitch." It's an intimate format where a business innovator is pressed to reveal their big plan to turn an idea into an empire. When time runs out, the host and guests rate the pitch and shift into overdrive with an unscripted, real-time Q&A session filled with even greater insight into the founder, the idea, the money behind it, the plan to turn a profit, and the chances for success. Then, only on Yahoo! Finance, will viewers hear from the CEO's about where they go from here.
