KillerStartups Weekly Roundup

You will not be able to make any kittens explode by reading ahead. Nor will you be able to drive a yet to exist or be confirmed iCar off the KillerStartups lot. Not even learning how to master visual hashtags here can prevent less deserving movies from taking home Oscars this weekend, sorry to say. Oh, but what you will find – what you will do after reading up on this week’s standout startups… so much more winning.

Killer Startups

  • PodClear. Please, please, please, before you try to create the next Serial, do all of us podcast fanatics a serious favor and record clear interviews.
  • “Creativity is contagious and outrageous.” For a creative design agency that values having a screw loose, CrazyHeads talks a lot of sense.
  • The road less traveled – no points for choosing this path and then missing everything that’s on it. Find out what’s right in front of you (beside, hidden around the corner, etc.): Alongways.
  • Yes, Google search is missing something. Riffiti has it. Go ahead, Google it. You won’t find the answer there.


Living the Startup Life

  • Unfinished videos. Countless work hours interrupted. Lives frustrated if not ruined. Stop this heartbreaking tale of loss (and melodrama) by adding fast WiFi throughout your entire house.
  • Some tech improves lives, some saves them. Especially if the stress of la vida startup contributes to a smoking habit, this is a must read.
  • Yoga studio vs. the gym? Wait, why do we need to choose? Shouldn’t we be able to move interchangeably between whatever classes help us stay fit? ClassPass. Om.


Startup Tips & Trends

  • The time is coming (if it hasn’t arrived already) when everyone will want their own mobile app. Apper may very well be The tool that lets us each have one.
  • #VisualHashtags. What? Why? Lots of good reasons. And one tool that lets you add them anywhere with ease.
  • If your company plans to open up shop in NYC or you want to visit the Big Apple like you already own the place, these apps will help you enjoy the city to the max – even as your system short circuits from sensory overload.
