roundup shot



Killer Startups

  • Walking the streets of NYC. Doesn’t matter if you’re familiar with strolling the ever-changing city (…should be on everyone’s bucket list!), Urban Walks manages to make exploring on foot even better.
  • TimeDock puts crews on the clock wherever a smartphone will travel. Heck yeah, you should take that contract in Antarctica.
  • Sharing content is key to maintaining a lively social media presence. DrumUp helps time-crunched media mavens stay active when short on reading time. Sharp!
  • What will poor Jared do? FreshRealm gives eating fresh a drastically different, amazing look.


Living the Startup Life

  • Whiteboard, whiteboard, blank wall, whiteboard, blank wall… enough! C’mon, startup friends, yes, even you, basement-bound entrepreneurs, you can decorate the office better than that.
  • So often the conversation concerning mentorship focuses on the benefits for the young padawan, but mentoring is great for the Jedi master as well. That’s not the dark side talking.
  • Don’t you just haute hoot gate – hate! – when your word processor makes writing more difficult? Time for a writing instrument built right for the digital age.


Startup Tips & Trends

  • For technology’s sake, put the phone down and shift your lead generation to autopilot. Only go to work after the hot leads fall into your lap.
  • A work management platform that doesn’t accommodate your workflow is like a river flowing up a mountain. Here’s a look at how to keep work moving in the right direction.
  • Where should you take your startup next? No need to put dart holes in your map. There’s a startup that has the answer for you.
