One of the most common questions I both ask and get asked when chatting with people in the tech world is “have you seen any exciting startups lately?” It’s important and interesting to investors, people interested in joining startups, corporate innovation and emerging tech teams, and anyone with a passion for startups.
Lately I’ve been putting more effort in to learning about and connecting with early stage startups. It’s fascinating to me, my network seems to appreciate it, and it’s always good to be in the know about new areas of growth.
To help a wider audience in such a way, I’m going to write about one early stage startup per week. Here’s what I’m going to be covering:
- Early stage – pre-series B, and more often, pre-series A
- NYC based (mostly)
- Fundraising within the near future
- I know the team, or at least have a strong connection
- Startups that I personally see as having enormous potential
I hope you’ll find this helpful! I welcome any feedback on the concept or suggestions on startups I should check out.
