It is the dream of every founder. You are standing in front of a group of investors pitching your startup, while they shower you with money and praise.

The reality, unfortunately, is vastly different, as most founders fail to raise capital from venture capitalists or angel investors, due to an underwhelming pitch in a crowded sea of startups.

The reality, unfortunately, is vastly different, as most founders fail to raise capital from venture capitalists or angel investors, due to an underwhelming pitch in a crowded sea of startups.

Now, imagine having an unfair advantage. The tools and knowledge to create a compelling, motivating pitch, and most importantly, that gets results?

That is where Donna Griffit’s book ‘Sticking To My Story: The Alchemy Of Storytelling For Startups’ comes in.

The book will take you step by step through:

Donna’s sincere belief is that everyone has a unique and compelling story. There are no boring stories – there are merely layers and stacks of information piled up, obscuring the beauty of the story. Let Donna help peel the layers away and let you polish your story until it “shines like the top of the Chrysler Building.”

Donna Griffit is uniquely positioned to help you with this.

Donna is a gifted Corporate Storyteller and Pitch Alchemist who has worked globally for 2 decades in over 30 countries with Fortune 500 companies, startups, and investors in a wide variety of industries, helping them create, edit, and deliver powerful presentations, pitches, and messages.

She magically spins raw data into compelling stories that captivate audiences and drive results. Through her guidance,
clients have raised over $1.5 Billion. 

Stewart Butterfield, CEO of Slack, said: “If there’s one piece of advice I could go back to give myself, it is concentrating on that storytelling part, on the convincing people. If you can’t do that, it doesn’t matter how good the product is. It doesn’t matter how good the idea was for the market or what happens in the external factors; you don’t have the people believing.”

So take the advice of the founder of one of the biggest startups in Silicon Valley, and craft your own story today.

About the author

Donna Griffit

After 20 years of creating magical stories that have raised over $1.5B – I decided that I want to reach more startups in more places. With a rocky, uncertain road ahead – my gift to Founders of the Present – and the Future – is this book – it’s my secret recipe for all things pitch deck, with a step-by-step plan for creating a winning deck, with examples that back it up and make it fun and easy to follow. 

Storytelling is an Ancient Art – but it still works today because it’s a core part of the human experience. And to quote my friend ChatGPT:  “Storytelling involves creating a narrative that engages and captivates an audience, and that requires a level of creativity, empathy, and emotional intelligence that AI systems currently lack. Additionally, storytelling often involves drawing on personal experiences and emotions, which AI systems cannot do.”  

I hope this will be a meaningful part of your tech journey! Good Luck! Donna Griffit, Corporate Storyteller and Pitch Alchemist.
