Calling All Student Entrepreneurs: Tell Us About Your Startup

Introducing Storylab, an in-house branded content studio from Future Startup

|
Dec 12, 2016

We are excited to formally announcing our in-house branded content studio Storylab, an effort to make our storytelling capacity available to brands and companies.

We are living in a post-ad and post-attention age. As the economist and psychologist, Herbert A. Simon once famously proclaimed, “what information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” This challenges the conventional notion of engaging with your audience.

Today’s consumers are too busy to pay attention to something they don’t want to pay attention to. They hate intrusive mediums and ads. They now have ad-blockers to take measures against ad and campaigns that they don’t want to attend to.

This is a new world where attention is the new currency and the most scarce of resources. At Future Startup, we believe in the power of a great story. Great stories move us, inspire us, make us think and take action. In a world where attention is scarce, only a good story can hold us together for awhile.

That’s where Storylab comes in. Storylab is our attempt to help brands to tell stories through integrated story campaign to engage and stay closer to their audience.
