Every person, product, team and company started somewhere. What’s that story? What were your beginnings and how did you get to where you are now? What were the challenges, turning points, aha moments and lessons learned? Be creative — this could be the story of how a team came together, how a product evolved or how you became the person you are today — but the emphasis is on telling a good story about the startup of the topic of your choice.
The best startup story, as determined by number of likes on SlideShare by the end of September, will get a free SlideShare PRO account and bragging rights, not to mention promotion and exposure on SlideShare (SlideShare now gets 60 million unique visits a month!).
Upload your presentation to SlideShare and be sure to tag it #mystartupstory. Once you’ve uploaded, be sure to share it on your social media channels, embed it on other sites, and get people to like it and do the same!
Need some inspiration? Here are a few examples already out there:
Don’t worry — your presentation doesn’t need to be as long as these, but we do recommend it’s at least 10 slides.
Good luck, and we look forward to seeing your startup story!
