In this post I reflect on Startup Genome’s past, announce a recent acquisition (hooray!) and discuss what’s next for the website, data and community of curators around the world.
Startup Genome began as a side project for Dave and myself about two years ago. We talked to hundreds of startup community builders around the world, learned what they needed to help their local communities, built a product, grew our curator network to over 300 and slowly improved Startup Genome when we had free time on nights and weekends.
Today I’m excited to share that we’re taking Startup Genome to the next level with a larger team, renewed focus and brand refresh.
