Check out Paul Graham’s advice on story telling when pitching. Reference form
Y Combinator Startup Library:
“Your goal, and your only goal, is to make investors feel it’s not safe
to cross you off. And there is a verb for convincing someone that something is not
safe. It sounds dramatic, but your goal is to frighten them.
What frightens them? The possibility that you might become really big. They know
there are maybe a few companies that will become really big….Before you start
meeting investors, put together a rough draft of your fundraising vertebrae. These
are the 3-4 points that compromise the narrative of why your company will be really
big. Together, if investors believed in any of these points, they’d be afraid
not to bet on you.
As you do, keep in mind that there is an important distinction between what the
business is and how you tell the story of what your business is. Your conversations
with investors should influence the latter, not the former. No investor knows your
business as well as you do.”
