Tell Your Startup's Story

A few ideas on how to make it happen

These are three stories your team can tell

The right team can make or break the startup.

1. How did I get here?

Each team member has a tale about where they came from and how they joined the startup. Having them tell it from their own perspective is a great way to add authenticity.

2. What's my philosophy?

Choosing the skill sets you want to work together to optimize your chances is an important decision. Whether you're devoted to devs or want a mixed bag, who would be on your ideal startup team?

3. How do we achieve alignment?

What is something that makes our startup unique and unites us all? "Googliness" is taken, so what elements of culture will your team create?

tell the stories that let the world know what you're made of

This was a very helpful article. Very strong points to consider when introductions and maintaining a collective harmony is vital - anywhere humans are gathering together under like-minded interests. Your story gave us a new idea to think about in respects to philosophy and alignment. Again, thank you, and much success to you. -Ct

@sydney I think they should be telling their story all the time. It's good for the team to remember where they came from when they look back as well as for outsiders to see their story as it develops and feel more invested in them. I'm glad I finally had time to post again! :)

Yay! I missed seeing your posts :) In what situation should a startup be telling their story? Is it mostly press, pitching, and recruiting I'd imagine?
