#How2Tuesday: How to Use Storytelling
The Blank Center’s #How2Tuesday series continues on Tuesday, November 8 at 5pm! How 2 Use Storytelling with Lakshmi Balachandra, Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship at Babson!
This session focuses on what entrepreneurs should consider when crafting their pitches – specifically, the how stories can capture investors’ interest when entrepreneurs pitch their ventures for funding. Participants will practice the art of storytelling and how effective crafting of the venture “story” can make a profound difference in which ventures receive investor attention and which get passed over in the funding process. Participants will observe different stories in the pitch, learn different approaches for crafting an opening pitch story, and practice creating an effective opening story for a successful investor pitch.
