🏁 You’re all set!

Startups Crushing It! is a premium newsletter about early-stage (before series A) technology startups. I publish the insights each Tuesday or Friday.

I look for strong positive signals using the FPTM model: Founders β€” Product β€” Traction β€” Mission.

I interview the founder(s), toy around with products, crunch numbers, and based on that, I decide which startups to feature.

If you want more, you can dig through the archives for the previous digests.
