Check out Paul Graham’s advice on story telling when pitching:
"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. But 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.”
