For startups, stories are 100% critical. It’s no secret that powerful story-telling makes the difference between getting funded or not. Beyond getting funding, stories are also crucial to building a killer brand, winning the hearts and minds of customers, and inspiring the team around you. We’re putting two awesome back-to-back sessions, bringing together some of the most gifted storytellers in Tech to discuss how entrepreneurs can successfully leverage the power of stories in their ventures. Don’t miss out!
