How to Craft a Good Startup Story

How to Craft a Good Startup Story

January 7, 2021 by investor

To pitch an investor, you’ll need a carefully crafted startup story. 

Just any old story won’t do. 

Tell the story in your own words as if you’re talking with a friend at a bar.

Show how the story is relevant to those in the audience, something everyone can relate to.

Keep the story simple. 

It needs to be tight and keeps the audience engaged.

Instead of starting at the beginning, start from the first big event whether it be a disaster or a success.  

Show the mistakes you made that others can learn from. 

Talk about your values and those of the company.

Demonstrate authenticity along the way.

Finally, have a message about your company’s brand that you want to communicate and use the story to build up to it.
