SlideShare Holding “Startup Story” Contest

I’ve written a number of times in this space about SlideShare’s story-oriented slide-presentation contests, the winners of which, I opined, were not always successful in telling stories with slides.

The site’s September Upload Contest has an interesting premise: My Startup Story. “Every person, product, team and company started somewhere — tell us that story,” the site requests. Interesting that SlideShare includes “person” as the possible center of a startup story.

More from the site about the contest:

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? Upload your startup story by Sept. 30, 2013, and be sure to tag it MyStartupStory for the chance to win a free SlideShare PRO account and be reviewed by Silicon Valley gurus Guy Kawasaki, Dave McClure, Hunter Walk and Douglas Crets!

Even if you have no interest in entering, you can see startup-story slideshows here, where you can also learn more about the contest.
