🚀 Submit Your Startup

I’m always open to working with all types of founders, no matter their ethnicity, gender, origin, or socio-economic background.

Please fill in this form if you want me to review your startup and product. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn as well.

As a rule of thumb, I look at startups who have at least built a minimal viable product.

I look for strong positive signals using the FPTM model: Founders — Product — Traction — Mission.

🏁 You’re all set!

Startups Crushing It! is a premium newsletter about early-stage (before series A) technology startups. I publish the insights each Tuesday or Friday.

I look for strong positive signals using the FPTM model: Founders — Product — Traction — Mission.

I interview the founder(s), toy around with products, crunch numbers, and based on that, I decide which startups to feature.

If you want more, you can dig through the archives for the previous digests.

Support me by forwarding it to a friend, and let them know they can signup here for free.
