LIFT Your Story With Our 7 New Workshops 

For any startup, storytelling is key. That’s why we’re once again partnering with the Made in NY Media Center by IFP to connect founders with experts who can elevate their businesses — and stories.  

LIFT Your Story is a series of workshops running concurrently at Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs in Philadelphia and The Made in NY Media Center in Brooklyn

Each workshop will help startup founders, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and executives refine their company’s missions, enhance their pitches to investors and clients, and elevate their storytelling abilities.

Led by a wide range of versatile creators and entrepreneurial educators, these talks and workshops will demonstrate how narrative form, structure, and character can enhance any startup strategy — whether it be pitching to potential investors, strengthening your “origin story” for marketing, or conducting smart digital media practices.
