At a recent roundtable, we made a startling discovery: several founders from our Top 30 Startups to Watch had acting backgrounds or even studied improvisation.

Walter Driver, the mind behind startup Scopely, says improv helps with interacting with people in real-time and in a spontaneous way. His company even offers improv classes to staffers.

Adam Braun, CEO and founder of Pencils of Promise, notes that improv performances help entrepreneurs develop stage presence and much-needed authenticity.

Take a look at how this surprising skill has transformed the way these founders communicate in this candid discussion. Tune back in for the next episode of this five-part video series shot during the last Empact Showcase held at the United Nations.
