Updated: Sep 14, 2023

This post was 100% machine-written by Storytell, as part of our Using Storytell to Build Storytell series. You can find all Storytell-written posts here. More on how we did it at the bottom of this post.

The Storytell Founders recently sat down to discuss why we're so passionate about starting Storytell:

Storytelling is key

To building strong relationships

The Storytell team knows

Storytelling is a powerful tool that can be used to connect with other humans, build relationships and explain products. The Storytell team is passionate about helping people connect with others and be better storytellers.

Jing shared how he was excited to be working together in San Mateo on his first official day in the new WeWork office. The Founders are planning to work a couple of days per week from the office and are using the time to brainstorm about the company.

Storytell is starting to build out some systems, but we want to do it in a mindful way that takes care of the people inside and outside the company. Erika shared the potential for machines to help humans evaluate root cause communication breakdowns and improve communication skills. She is also excited about the possibilities of Storytell to help people communicate more effectively and remove information asymmetry.

The importance of passing the "Mom Test" and how it can be used to listen to users and understand their needs was discussed by Jing. The value of listening to users and how it can help to create new use cases and improve the customer experience was emphasized by DROdio.

Jing described a new way of summarizing long documents and reflected on his work and how he has maintained a personal learning jourmal for decades. He described how he used an audio file + Storytell to journal his work while caring for his daughter instead of writing it all up manually like he used to do. Jing reflected on that process and how it took him just three extra minutes.

The use of rich media can be used to be more efficient. One way to use rich media is to record voice recordings instead of typing. This can be helpful if you want to spend more time with your child, like Jing was able to do.

Jing discussed a magical moment he had with his young daughter, where he shared reflections on his life. Jing's daughter learned a new word, 'papa', after Jing started talking with her more. DROdio and Jing discusseed how every day matters when raising a child, as their personality is being formed every day.

Storytelling is a way to raise money from VCs or to hire people into the company. Empowering people to be better storytellers means they'll just be able to be more effective in whatever they're doing.

A Speech:

Hello everyone,

I'm excited to be here with you today as we start our journey together in San Mateo. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and brainstorming about the company.

We're building this company because we want to make a difference. We want to build something that is efficient and accurate, that takes care of people inside and outside the company. We want to create something that is literary of a higher quality. And we want to do all of this in a way that is ethical and mindful.

Success to us looks like a company that is thriving and making a positive impact on the world. We want to be a company that people are proud to be a part of.

So let's get to work!
