StartupRoar - Great Content for Startups

Today I join Ben Yoskovitz, Vinicius Vacanti, Jill Hubbard Bowman and Steve Blank and others in announcing the launch of StartupRoar.


This site aggregates and filters content from thought leaders who talk about topics such as Marketing, Sales, Design, Revenue, Hiring, Social Media, Business Models, Metrics, PR, Venture Capital, Angel Investors, Bootstrapping, Incubators, Agile and many others.

As you might imagine, when you go to the page on Customer Development, you find the best and the latest content from people like Steve Blank and Vinicius Vacanti.  For example:

Similarly, when you look at IP / Intellectual Property for Startups, it's dominated by Jill Hubbard Bowman's wonderful content.  Or looking at issues around Founders you find the great post from Ben Yoskovitz on Founder DNA – How Investors Evaluate Startup Founders.  Click around on the various topics to find some amazing resources.

The home page always shows the latest and greatest content coming out.  You can also “change edition” to focus on content written today, yesterday, this week, this month, this year, or other date ranges.  The top items from StartupRoar This Month are some really great pieces:

You can subscribe to a daily or weekly feed of content and you can follow StartupRoar on Twitter.

One thing to make clear, StartupRoar is a jump off point.  All content is shown as a snippet and links directly back to the source.  The site aggregates content but doesn't own it or try to copy it.  The goal is to bring together very high quality content selected by curators, provide a way to navigate through that content, help surface content that might be missed, and be a jump off point to the rich, vibrant startup content community.
