Tim Shisler Breaking Down His Storytelling Framework for Startups 

About This Epic Event

Telling a great story is more than showcasing your product, market opportunity or expertise. Great stories, the ones that lead to action, are constructed in a way that brings together the human need to ‘fight or flight’, with an actionable solution.

In this Pitch Lab workshop, we discuss common mistakes startups make when telling stories and provide a toolkit so you can avoid them.

We’ll also dive into the science of storytelling and why the hero's journey is more than just a Hollywood structure.

What trials unite not only Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins but many of literature's most interesting heroes? And what do ordinary people have in common with these literary heroes? 

Takeaways from the Stage

  • Storytelling framework to understand why stories work and how to improve yours through small changes
  • Techniques on how to quickly connect and form a trusting relationship with audiences
  • 5 story types all startup founders need to master
