🤷🏽♂️ New Blog, Who dis?
Hey, thanks for stopping by! Since you're trusting us with your time, we’re going to trust you with our best startup ideas by sharing a regular round-up of what people are talking about on our new platform, Kern.al.
Before we get to the ideas, we wanted to share a little insight into our building journey so far. So here's the breakdown of how we started:
🗣 A small group of us came together last year and wondered, “what if there was a platform to find, share and grow startup ideas all in one place…”
🔨 One thing led to another and we used no-code tools to build a platform for what we wanted to see
📱 We texted a couple of friends, called a few founders and after we saw their reactions, we knew we were onto something
💯 Users got excited and asked us if they could spread the word. We gave them a nod and we were off to the races
🙌 We’re now up to 200 beta users and 70 brilliant startup ideas, so we thought we’d kick off the first round-up email to keep you updated
✏️ If you haven’t already posted a startup idea, we’d love to see it!
🙋♀️ Lastly, if you have any questions, ideas or feedback, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. If you know any superstars ✨ that should be on the platform, give them exclusive early access with this code:

We built this for Mixergy, my podcast. Took forever, but it’s been a powerful revenue driver. It allows supporters to get older episodes and exclusive content. I think it should be productized. Most podcasters will not have a big enough audience for ads to support them. But getting 100 people to pay $25 each is doable…. Read more
Newsletter-first media company that covers bootstrapped, lean (people-wise), online businesses
by Alexis Grant
Still figuring out the best words to describe this, but what I envision…
+ Newsletter-first company (would likely use website as well for audience growth)
+ Combination of original reporting/storytelling and aggregating from other sources
+ Success stories, updates on tools used by this community, how-to advice, all with the goal of helping these people grow the profit and reach of their online businesses… Read more

Thinking of like an individual Reddit for each of my group texts
• I create one and add people by phone number
• Static place to submit links, stuff
• Friends can upvote, and comment on each thing
• Posts are sorted some kind of reasonable understandable way… Read more
A show like Westminster Dog Show but for rescue dogs rather than breeds
by Ryan Begelman
Big events make big money and have great working capital dynamics, so I love big event ideas. And I love promoting rescue dogs as a choice over buying pure bread. How about a giant show that features rescue dogs and gives out prizes for fun categories like best xzy mix or best overbite… Read more
CRM for Twitter — A tool to curate people I meet on Twitter
by Sughanthan Sekar
I meet a lot of cool people on Twitter. People are more than what they list in their bio. Sometimes through DM I find out that someone has a skill that is not listed in the bio. It would be useful if I can tag people with tags that I think are relevant… Read more
