… I hope this post finds you in the best of your health.
Our post event StartupWeekend Team has grown by 24 particpants. It was 19 a few weeks earlier. That’s how sales conversion funnels works in reality. It takes a lot of effort to create something new regularly for each of your customers, and sell them.
I am trying to summarize on startup happenings, primarily around venture funding to all folks who might be interested, and would really appreciate your time to scoop the lists. First order of business — Why? To educate, perhaps. Much to my understanding, a lot of entrepreneurs love to connect with an Angel/VC at some point after starting up. Chances are even, if you have the right product, you might never know whom to connect with regards to funding. And, many startup’ers seek the wrong kind of investment. A startup getting funded is not a buyout, which is a common misnomer. And, lots more reason to justify the purpose.
That said, I am no expert on startups, and merely a curator of happenings. We have room for more writers/bloggers. This weekly mailer is a tracker on latest startup funding deals happening in the industry. I can’t preach what I don’t practice, right? So, here’s the link to the latest newsletter. Eagerly looking forward your opinions.
And, if you haven’t joined this group yet, don’t be shy. Feel free to share this link, and invite others hustlers/devs/designers from your individual StartupWeekend teams. Interested sharing ideas? Here’s a small effort to outreach all hustlers/devs/designers. Join our WhatsApp Group. Let’s talk startups!
