0:26

learn how to implement these strategies


0:29

and make your startup Stand Out Among


0:31

the rest so let's dive into it the first


0:36

step in a compelling pitch is to


0:38

introduce Evelyn this is how it is today


0:41

it's pretty bad


0:43

what's up that sucks exactly


0:46

I just want to be clear because


0:48

sometimes when people are like confused


0:50

about it this is real okay this is


0:53

actually how most you know most power in


0:55

the world is is generated with with


0:57

fossil fuels identify the core problem


0:59

Your solution addresses and present it


1:02

as the obstacle to your customers


1:04

happiness


1:05

just like musk did make sure the villain


1:08

sets the stage for your hero your


1:11

product or service next create a sense


1:14

of urgency by emphasizing the


1:16

consequences if the problem isn't solved


1:19

this will make your audience feel the


1:21

need to act and invest in your solution


1:25

if you look at the the curve that's a


1:28

famous curve of the killing curve which


1:30

shows the the growth in CO2


1:33

concentration in the atmosphere and


1:36

every year it wraps itself it gets


1:38

higher and higher and if we do nothing


1:39

that's how that's what where it's headed


1:42

make your audience curious about where


1:45

your pitch is heading presents them with


1:49

an interesting fact or image that will


1:51

grab their attention and keep them


1:53

hooked that blue square there is the is


1:56

the land area that's needed to


1:59

transition the United States to a zero


2:01

carbon electricity situation


2:03

it's really not much


2:05

and most of that most of that area is


2:07

going to be in rooftops so it's you you


2:09

won't need to disturb land you won't


2:10

need to find new new areas it's mostly


2:13

just going to be on existing


2:15

the roofs of existing homes and


2:17

buildings so your audience what needs to


2:20

happen to reach the desired outcome


2:22

demonstrate how your product or service


2:25

is the missing piece that will solve the


2:27

problem and create the brighter future


2:29

so the missing piece is what we're going


2:31

to show you tonight


2:34

instead of just talking about your


2:36

solution show it in action use visuals


2:39

videos or demonstrations to bring your


2:42

product to life and make it more


2:45

tangible for your audience


2:52

[Music]


3:02

thank you


3:05

[Music]


3:12

[Music]


3:29

foreign


3:39

[Music]


3:55

[Applause]


4:01

so this is this is a product we call the


4:04

Tesla powerwall when presenting your


4:07

product emphasize its advantages and how


4:10

it can improve your customers lives


4:13

focus on the benefits rather than just


4:15

listing its features I think about sort


4:19

of buying a battery what does this


4:21

provide you well it gives you peace of


4:23

mind so if there's if there's a cut in


4:25

the utilities you're always going to


4:26

have power particularly if you're in a


4:28

place that's very cold now you you don't


4:30

have to worry about


4:32

being out of power if there's a if


4:34

there's an ice storm you can actually go


4:37

if you want completely off grid you can


4:39

take your solar panels charge the


4:41

battery packs and that's and that's all


4:43

you use


4:45

so it gives you safety security uh it


4:48

and it gives you a complete and


4:50

affordable solution create a sense of


4:54

urgency by letting your audience know


4:56

that your solution is available now and


4:59

why they should act quickly


5:01

this will help bridge the gap between


5:03

supply and demand and ensure more


5:06

immediate results


5:09

um so you you can order the power wall


5:11

right now on the Tesla website actually


5:14

go to teslaenergy.com and you can order


5:15

the Powerball right now


5:18

um


5:21

we're going to start we're going to


5:22

start shipping in approximately three or


5:24

four months and initially the ramp will


5:27

be will be slow because these packs will


5:29

be made in our Fremont Factory and then


5:31

next year the ramp will go much much


5:33

higher as we transition to the


5:35

gigafactory in Nevada


5:38

to Big trust use demos customer feedback


5:41

and testimonials to remove uncertainty


5:44

show your audience that your product is


5:47

effective and reliable then the power


5:50

the power that we're using in the


5:52

building to being battery powered of


5:55

course so so let's let's go to the


5:58

camera feed to


6:00

let's go let's go check out the power


6:01

meter


6:08

oh wow the Grid it's actually zero


6:12

this entire night has been powered by


6:14

batteries of


6:17

[Applause]


6:26

not only that the batteries were charged


6:28

by the solar panels on the roof of this


6:30

building


6:32

so this entire night everything you're


6:35

experiencing is stored sunlight


6:38

show your audience how your product or


6:41

service has the potential to grow and


6:43

make a lasting impact this will be


6:46

especially important for investors and


6:48

early adopters


6:51

transport


6:57

to renewable you need approximately two


6:59

billion power packs now that may seem


7:02

like an insane number and I'm very


7:05

tempted to do the you know the brilliant


7:07

thing but


7:09

look restrain my hand


7:12

[Laughter]


7:15

but


7:17

um in order to to it's like two billion


7:19

uh power packs is that is that a crazy


7:21

number is that a possible number it it


7:23

is not in fact the number of cars and


7:26

trucks that we have on the road is


7:29

approximately two billion


7:30

and every every 20 years approximately


7:33

that gets refreshed there's 100 million


7:35

new cars and trucks made every year


7:37

so the point I want to make is that this


7:39

is actually within the power of humanity


7:41

to do


7:43

if we have done things like this before


7:46

and so it's it's not impossible it is it


7:49

is really something that that we we can


7:51

do


7:52

um


7:53

and the final Point number 10


7:56

pitch with passion and show your genuine


7:59

excitement for the future investors are


8:02

more likely to buy into your long-term


8:04

Vision if they see that you are truly


8:07

committed to your cause that that's the


8:10

future we could have


8:12

where the the curve slowly rolls over


8:15

and goes to zero no incremental CO2


8:19

that that's that's the future we need to


8:22

have


8:23

and that's that's something that I and


8:26

and the path that I've talked about the


8:28

solar panels and the and the batteries


8:31

that's the only part that I know that


8:32

can do this


8:34

um and and I think it's something that


8:36

that we must do uh and and we we can do


8:40

and that we will do


8:42

so now that you have learned the secrets


8:45

of Elon musk's storytelling it's time to


8:48

implement these techniques in your own
