Successfully Delivering Your Story: The Ultimate Startup Investor Pitch Deck

Successfully Delivering Your Story: The Ultimate Startup Investor Pitch Deck | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
After 14+ years of writing hundreds of investor pitches that raised hundreds of millions of dollars — here’s the winning formula! When you see about 50 pitch decks a week over 14 years, you see A LOT…
Karen Dietz's insight:

What a great pitch deck that follows the structure of a story!

 

We've known for quite awhile that when pitching your company to funders, you've got to tell your story -- of the problem, solution, your biz plan, benefits, etc.

 

But how do you put it all together using narrative structure? Well, here's your easy to follow guide. After reviewing dozens of these over the years, this one will definitely work for you and bring in those bucks (as long as your product, solution, benefits are spot on).

 

Happy fundraising...

Start Up Stories From Techstars

Start Up Stories From Techstars | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it

Startup Stories are short documentaries about the amazing journeys Techstars companies go through. These are stories exploring the key moments, struggles and passions in building a company. We think startup stories are fascinating and contain valuable lessons. We want to help share these stories following the adventures entrepreneurs go through on their mission to build a startup.

Karen Dietz's insight:

Want first hand stories from entrepreneurs and the lessons they've learned? It's Techstars to the rescue!


Now this collection of entrepreneur stories looks very promising. There are only a few here now, but keep checking back as they add more. And I'm thrilled that someone has finally thought to do this because I think the stories will be very helpful and insightful for entrepreneurs of all types. And for companies wanting to foster entrepreneurship internally.


Enjoy these short digital stories.

4 Types Of Startup Stories To Win Investors

4 Types Of Startup Stories To Win Investors | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
Investment decisions are supposed to be based on rational analysis. But don't discount the power of a compelling narrative to engage a funder emotionally.
Karen Dietz's insight:

Just yesterday I finished putting together a storytelling program for startups to create their pitch deck. Lots of specific stories are needed in order to create a winning pitch to venture capitalists.

 

Then today this post pops up on my screen. Talk about serendipity! What I like about the article are the 4 story types that a startup can take. Each startup story is unique, yet typically falls into one of these 4 story types.

 

What I don't like about the article is that the original title is "4 Keys To Crafting A Winning Startup Story". It sounds like you are going to get tips for crafting your startup story. The article isn't about that, but it does lay out the 4 types very well.

 

If your are struggling with your startup story, this post will definitely help you. Which story type fits you best?

Packaging your #funding request is not just about numbers. You're dealing with humans who have emotions. Tell a great #story.
