Expectations


What to expect from The Startup Foundry:

We will be posting 4-5 articles a day. At least one of those will be focused on a startup that hasn’t made it big yet, but we believe will soon. We love startups and want to see them succeed. This is a place where startup founders and investors can call home.

What we expect from our community: The Startup Foundry is a place where iron sharpens iron. We encourage you to jump into the comments and share your insight with the collective whole. Constructive criticism is appreciated, but trolling will get you banned. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

The Weekly is our newsletter. Top 5 articles from the week delivered right to your mailbox. Sign up for it. You can unsubscribe with one click if you don’t want it.

The tech platforms that we are using on The Startup Foundry:

T.S.F. uses WordPress for our blogging platform.

We are a member of the InfluAds network. The quality of advertisers here is incredible. You will only see one (relevant) ad on the sidebar because of this great partner.

We use Disqus for our commenting engine. Login using your Facebook, Twitter

MediaTemple has graciously offered to host our site on their (dv) platform. Setup was a snap, and I’m seeing lower pings then on my development server that sits 5 feet away from me. Incredible.

You can follow us on twitter @startupfoundry .

Please feel free to introduce yourself to me in the comments. I look forward to building The Startup Foundry into the premiere place for startups. All the best.

    I got nothing against startups having a piggy ride on some platform, still everything depends on it some control is given away kinda lazy eh. I could be wrong about the angle thinking about it , Do you have some backup.

  • just saw this – Powered by blood, sweat, and tears of entrepreneurs.. thats a nice catch phrase
