NEW IDEAS FORWARD
In his bestselling book Backable, Suneel Gupta explains that the key to success is not talent, connections, or ideas, but the ability to persuade people to take a chance on your potential.
There is a reason that some people can get investors or bosses to believe in them while others cannot. Thankfully, the reason has little to do with experience, pedigree, or a polished business plan. Backable people seem to have a hidden quality that inspires others to act.
WHY NEW IDEAS?
Drawing lessons from hundreds of the world’s biggest thinkers, Suneel discovered how to pitch new ideas in a way that has raised millions of dollars, influenced large-scale change inside massive corporations, and even convinced his eight-year-old daughter to clean her room.
Inside Backable are long-held secrets from producers of Oscar-winning films, members of Congress, military leaders, culinary stars, venture capitalists, founders of unicorn-status startups, and executives at iconic companies like Lego, Method, and Pixar.
Backable reveals how the key to success is not charisma, connections, or even your résumé, but rather your ability to persuade others to take a chance on you. This original book will show you how.
