You have a game-changing idea with a ton of potential. Now it’s time to take things to the next stage.
How do you succeed without compromising your values? How do you make the world a better place? How do you avoid becoming the next Pied Piper, the fictional tech startup in HBO’s “Silicon Valley”?
There’s nothing fictional about the intense pressure and rollercoaster existence of a tech startup trying to secure funding to build a revolutionary idea into a viable company. As Pied Piper’s founder Richard Hendricks discovered, the story you tell can make the difference between the realization of a dream and a never-ending series of nightmares.
For Richard and his colleagues, the best intentions and unbridled optimism can't overcome a lack of marketing chops that dooms the startup at every turn. Their failure to articulate a clear consumer story leads to confusion and the collapse of their main product.
