What would you do if you flubbed your introduction during a high-stakes pitch?

The investors for the premiere of season 7 are Peter Goldberg, founder of PLG ventures and Elevator Pitch host; Nicole Walters, CEO and founder of Inherent Learning Company; Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix; and Kim Perell, CEO of 100.co.
