The craziest ideas—the ones that are most likely to change the world—are often the hardest ones to sell. But that doesn’t mean we stop trying. We build the skills and invest the energy to make ourselves backable. And we realize, as all backable people eventually do, that when you get dismissed, there is always another room.
If you don't truly believe in your ideas, no presentation can save you. Let authentic enthusiasm shine through. Feel a genuine emotional connection to your vision.
As challenges arise, check if they energize or deplete you. Your passion sets the tone.
Stories of how ideas help real people are more compelling than abstractions. Imagine speaking to one person when pitching.
Highlight how a central character uniquely benefits. Build empathy by showing real impact.
Go beyond surface research to uncover non-Google-able insights.
Demonstrate the journey that led you to your idea. Share what you uniquely learned through deep field research.
Make audiences feel like insiders.
Leverage FOMO - the fear of missing out. Make inaction seem riskier than action.
Show unique benefits of moving now. Make your idea feel like an unstoppable rising tide sweeping people along.
Practice pitches in low-stakes environments to refine style and messaging. Be open to completely reinventing your approach based on feedback.
Embrace failures as learning. Losses prepare you for later wins.
Be willing to reinvent your thinking around ideas. Let go of preconceived notions of what will work.
Allow new information and context to shape your approach. Rigidity is the enemy of innovation.
We often chalk 'it' up to natural talent or charisma...either you have 'it' or you don't. But 'it' can be learned.
No one makes it alone. But there’s a reason why some people can get investors or bosses to believe in them while others cannot.

In his book Backable, Suneel Gupta argues that the key to success in business isn’t talent, connections, or ideas – it’s the ability to persuade people to take a chance on your ideas. Drawing lessons from hundreds of the world’s biggest thinkers, he shows readers how to craft a story that will make your ideas irresistible, and teaches techniques that will help you overcome objections, close deals, and bring your ideas to life.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
