  • How to Master Startup Brand Storytelling - Featuring Jason Calacanis (Webinar)

    “If your business is not worth startup storytelling, then you should probably not start one at all.” An audience will remember a story better than data, and there is deeper engagement when you ignite an emotion with a verbal illustration. Storytelling inspires action, interest, and personal connection. Targeting emotion is a valuable, yet overlooked, component to successful marketing. What’s your startup’s story? What makes your business unique, and how will you convey this to your target market auspiciously? If you need help creating an impactful narrative for your company, join us for our upcoming webinar, “How to Master Brand Storytelling”, featuring two multi-time entrepreneurs and startup investors: - Adeo Ressi (Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute, 9X entrepreneur, and Managing Director of Expansive Ventures) - Jason Calacanis (Founder of WebBlogs, host of "This Week In Startups", creator of the LAUNCH Conference, and Founder & CEO of Inside.com). THIS IS AN ONLINE EVENT: It will take place at http://fi.co/webinars RSVP AT: http://bit.ly/founder_hotseat About Jason Calacanis Jason began his reign as an all-star Internet entrepreneur and blogger after launching Weblogs, Inc., a publishing company that he co-founded together with Brian Alvey, capitalizing on the growth of blogs before being sold to AOL.
