Having run a startup for almost 2 years now I’ve seen a fair amount of tools and resources that are aimed to make life easier and help along the way. Obviously there’s so much out there online right now that usefulness can vary, but every now and again you come across a tool that you realise is pure gold.
Sometimes I wonder how I’d cope without some of the tools I’ve found (or been recommended) and certainly wish I had a list of them back when I started out. So, I’m going to share with you every decent resource I’ve experienced so far. If you think I’ve left any off, just add it in the comments and I’ll update. Enjoy.
Note: There are other, extensive lists like this on FortunePick and Steve Blank’s site. I’ve asterixed any that I’ve personally used at Floxx or otherwise.
