The story of FastCustomer

July 18, 2011

Inspired by Chris Yeh’s storytelling post here.  Here’s how I would tell our story, as it relates to raising funds.

Once upon a time…. the people waited on hold.
And every day…. they cursed their fate and gnashed their teeth, waiting a release from this needless burden.
Until one day…. a company was born. A shining star relegating needless hassles to the trash heap of history. And lo!  Their technology was Goode.
And because of that…. whenever the peoples needed help, they simply clicketh.  And it happeneth.
Until Finally…. The evil that is Holde was no more upon the land.
Ever since that day…. the people raised FastCustomer upon their shoulders and carried it all about the land, for they feared not the Holde. They praised the early investors for their courage and vision, and sang songs about them into the evenings.
And the moral is…. funding the dreamers who wield technology to remove burdens from the world is a most worthy endeavor.

How would you write up your story?
