Writing for Startups

Friday, October 1

& Saturday October 2

10 AM - 4 PM EST via Zoom

Writing for Startups is an interactive, 2-day course designed to help entrepreneurs tell the story of their vision.


When you join the Writing for Startups cohort, you will develop a clear and compelling narrative that encompasses your vision, mission, and values.

Together with fellow entrepreneurs, you will build an "About" narrative for your work through interactive and experiential storytelling.


Over the course of two days, you'll build community and expand your capacity for creative thinking. 


You'll leave Writing for Startups with a new, effective narrative to share the story of your work, as well as with storytelling tools that you can use moving forward.

Writing for Startups is grounded in creativity research and adult learning pedagogy.


Writing for Startups uses Maypop Creativity Consulting's tools to create a workshop environment that sparks creative thinking and helps your best ideas come to life.


Based in creativity research and adult learning pedagogy, Writing for Startups is designed to stick with you, so that the skills you build over two days are skills that support your future.
