We started StartupBlink because we felt that something was missing in the ecosystem. Founding a startup is a lonely endeavor, and it seems to us that startups are mainly focused on what they do, and only come to the surface when they need something ( e.g. investor or employees). We want to create a community that is oriented toward cooperation, sharing information, and mutual accountability.

Let’s start with the obvious benefits that StartupBlink is offering for you, as a founder:
