介绍：A curated directory of 400 resources & tools for startups
Jason Hitchcock: I need a curated list of curated lists of resources for startups.
Congrats on finally launching Bram, no doubt you painstakingly curated this yourself. Looks awesome :)
Is this going to be updated periodically, or expanded, or where do you plan on taking it?
Nice concept Bram. Would love to see this grid in alphabetical order. Currently, they are all in the orange boxes and I get lost trying to look for something. Maybe if there was some visual way to represent each category (Different background / color)
Possibly even have the top 3 in each category on the homepage, and you can click for more under each category? Just an idea.
Hamish Mcgregor: This is awesome. Great tool!
levlandau: Really great work Bram. Appreciate the nod to Gigster. We've also got people visit us (and initiate projects) as a direct result of Startup Stash. Thanks! I'll definitely be spreading the word about your product. [Some Feedback: definitely allow for search :)]
Cocoy Suguitan: I love all-things-startup, this is awesome thank you!
Liam F. Tjoa: Great product Bram!
Chiel Versteege: Supercool! Wish I discovered it earlier...
This. is. awesome.
As a Startup Weekend facilitator and general startup community guy, this is an amazing list to answer pretty much any question starting with, "Where can I..."
Ross Currie: I'd suggest Namesilo for your domain collection. Free domain privacy for life. I don't like the idea that I have to pay extra to hide my home address on other registrars - gets expensive when you juggle 20+ domains.
Claire-Emilie Lecocq: This is awesome, thanks!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk):
Thanks to everyone who voted and shared Startup Stash! The last 48hours have been crazy! Tried the process all the madness by writing a blogpost, hope you like it!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk):
Startup Stash is a curated directory of resources and tools to help you build your startup. It includes 400 products in 40 categories, like for example: Idea Generation, Early users, Marketing, Raising Capital and Customer support. Each category consists of 10 handpicked resources and tools, all with their own detail page that displays some info about the product.
I thought it would be fun to build a simple and useful site that can help you find resources and tools while building your startup. Hopefully Startup Stash will become the first thing you look at when you need a certain tool, just like an oldskool startpage! :)
Would love to hear your thoughts!
** Ok, this got totally out of control! Thanks to everyone for voting and sharing Startup Stash! I tried to process all the madness by writing a blogpost, you can read it here: https://medium.com/@bramk/how-i-... **
Mighty Alex: Kudos! Question - how can a service get featured? It would be nice if the featured services (when you have more) are related to the selected category.
Steve Benjamins: Awesome. Do you have affiliate programs programs setup? (Just curious, to me it wouldn't effect the "integrity" of the lists of you did).
Vinish Garg: Awesome. The way startups are mushrooming, seems ironical that we see all kinds of facilitators and directions pouring in as a fuel.
Ankur Kumar: Great design. It'd be awesome if you'd rank the products a/c popularity. Maybe add a upvote feature? It'd be easy to trust the product if we'll see people backing it.
Tim Gouw: Great collection and resources! Some are well known usual suspects but look out for the diamonds in the rough. If @bramk says it rocks, he's right.
Emiel Janson: Love the name.
Alex Ciobanu: it would be helpful to show the tag (price/free) and ultimately build collection around pricing, as it is very important for startups;)
Zara Martirosyan: This is such a needed website!! Thank you for creating this tool, Bram!
Miles Varghese: We got a number of people visit our site as a direct result of Startup Stash. Keep you posted if any of those deals work out - definitely see the value for everyone in this Bram! Great job
Paresh Patel: @alexeiciobanu Yes this would be very helpful.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @stevebenjamins thanks Steve! So for now this is really an MVP, have thought about affiliate links but haven't implemented it.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @obinkhorst thanks Olle!
Ross Currie: @golocalapps Cool, didn't know that. Should definitely be on the list
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @evanczhou thanks Evan!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @nakliguru noted ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @fredrivett thanks Fred! I'm thinking about a supporting image for the squares, love the way oozled does this. For now it's really an MVP, the products in a category are not ranked in any way, it's up to you to decide which one is best for the phase your startup is in right now :) Maybe with another layout of the category page this can be more clear. As said before, maybe it's best to see it as somewhat of a blog where I curate the content, with a focus on discovery, not on reviews or something like that.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @sabben thanks Peter!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @webjoe thanks!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @subodhkolhe thanks!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @wanghq cheers!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @lipmanb thanks Brandon!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @bryandeluca thanks Bryan!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @cgimmer thanks Christopher!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @rossdcurrie Noted! ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @joshmuccio thanks Josh, love your podcast!
Michael John McClain: @rossdcurrie po box
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @jadlimcaco Thanks Jad! So I had them ordered alphabetically at first, but now they're in the order that (kinda) represents the process from getting an idea to creating a startup. The products in each category are not ranked in any way, it's up to you to decide which resource or tool fits the stage your startup is in right now.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk):
@yvoschaap It's really an MVP for now, collecting feedback etc :)
But there are some categories I want to add in the future:
* Revenue models
* Pitch & Deck
* Product Management
* Task Management
* Funding docs
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @liamtjoa thanks Liam!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @lucylzhao thanks Lucy! Indeed, there are A LOT of dev tools, splitting them up would be a great idea, noted ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @kyletaylored YES, this is exactly the purpose of why I made this. I've had similar responses from universities to show it to their students and investors showing this to their portfolio, thanks Kyle!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @chandureddivari thanks!
Ross Currie: @golocalapps Should probably add - "Available to US residents only". That's a bit stupid.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @ryangum Thanks Ryan! Yeah, this took me a while to get together ;) I've been collecting and making lists for a very long time, so that's kinda where the idea came from. I love discovering new tools and resources (also why I <3 Product Hunt) so the first step was to bundle them, thinking about updating it from time to time, so you can somewhat see it as a blog ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @emieljanson thanks Emiel!
Ross@GoLocalApps: @rossdcurrie google domains does this as well. $12 a year and includes privacy.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @punttim thanks tim!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @fredrivett cheers!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @alexeiciobanu noted! :)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @robertwilliger thanks Robert!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @robertvhoesel thanks Robert! Getting tons of emails already haha
Fred Rivett: @bramk Sure thing! Totally appreciate the MVP nature, it's already a valuable resource, good job on getting it out there.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @kevgroenendaal yes yes yes I know, still hiding under the MVP label ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @jvannistelrooy awesome, thanks Jasper!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @vivekmgeorge thanks Vivek!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @joshdance thanks Joshua! Actually a lot of people are referring to this. I had all my content done when Ali posted this, was working on hosting/front-end stuff - but hey, there are 10 people working on the same thing at any given time right ;)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @themlsmith nice thanks!
Michael John McClain: @bramk Category first. Alphabetically within category. One list. Separate categories.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @crixlet nice idea! noted :) thanks Aaron!
Lucy Zhao: @bramk Most comprehensive startup list I've seen to date! Great stuff. Anything on the road map to split up development tools into more categories? There are lots of great resources there too!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @golocalapps thanks Ross!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @vtlvrbnk Hey Vitaliy! The status for now is (sorry can't make it anything else): it's one of 600+ submissions I got - working on how to process them and see how SS is ging to evolve. That's it for now! :)
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @sailornathan thanks a lot Nathan! So yeah I've limited every product to 1 category (there are more products that are suitable for multiple categories) - glad you like it!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @vingar thanks Vinish!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @mohitmamoria boom!
@bramk I agree with @robertvhoesel. I had to look for it and scroll to find the submit option. I'm sure by being on top of PH you will get tons of emails in the days :), but maybe this will help in the future.
Another idea might be upvoting/likes on your proposed list so you can keep it short (very important :) and quickly eliminate the "losers" for new names.
One thing I'd really change is to have the link to the website accessible directly in the list vs. having to open a new page with almost the same information. It's ok if I want more info, but accessing the site quickly is more important I think (or at least give me the option): now it takes 3 clicks from start to site.
Excellent selection btw and of course thanks a lot for putting this together. It's great.
Ross@GoLocalApps: @rossdcurrie I didn't even look at that. We've got something like 120 domains, most at godaddy, but a few I do on google for the free privacy. Granted why would I be embarrassed that I own a domain like republicanssaythecraziestthings.com, but still.
Ross Currie: @golocalapps Yeah I had a legitimate concern recently where a issue covered by some of the domains I own was getting a LOT of negative press. We're talking protests and riots and the last thing I wanted was some crazy Internet person linking my domain to that issue and then showing up on my doorstep. I moved all of my domains over to Namesilo... and pretty happy with it. I don't get all the spammy godaddy emails anymore.
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @m1lesv thanks so much Miles, that's awesome!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @levandreessen that's awesome!
Dawn Casey-Rowe: @bramk Great article on the curation process, too. Really loved it.
@rrhoover @bramk Dayum! The ultimate startup resource indeed. Very helpful, if only this would have been around when we set up our operations. So much time wasted on desk research, reinventing the wheel.
FYI you might be able to use some of the Funding docs from cf.sg
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @yonidejene wohooooo!! thanks Yoni!
joel: @bramk and @startupstash great product and comments. @prabhakar_u I agree that this is a great resource for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. I think its always amazing when you build a product and it is something that you use all the time. I think having this curated list at my fingertips to give me what I need when needed, is amazing!
Bram Kanstein (@bramk): @pieterpaul thanks Pieter! Basically I've been making lists for a very long time, these are the best things I've collected ;)
@punttim @bramk Agree about these being some of the usual suspects. What would be cool would be to see like the "hidden secrets" at the top, with the more general stuff under.
Or some other way to distinguish between the generic stuff and the "Hey, you really need to know about this"
@bramk When will you launch these lists?
* Revenue models
* Pitch & Deck
* Product Management
* Task Management
* Funding docs
Pieter Walraven: @bramk Very impressive list of resources! Anything you could tell about the curation process?
