Happy Friday Founders,
Netflix shat the bed, Serena is still the GOAT and one of you got in a tussle with Elon. It's Earth Day for those that got a stare-down walking with your non-reusable coffee cup 10mins ago. Wanna know our biggest high from the week? It wasn't a 4/20 parade. It was one of you telling us Kernal is your favourite chrome bookmark. That's what we call product-market lit.
Enough blabbing, let's get to the goods.👇
- 💥 Founder wins that'll inspire you more than Tony Robbins
- 🎶 Startup ideas fresher than your Grandma's banana bread
- 🍻 Weekend headlines to impress your happy hour date
Stop talking 'bout WeCrashed, pull up a chair and let's dive in. ☕️
🙌 Founder Wins of the Week:
Heads up: if you like our newsletter you'll love our Twitter game. Tweet us your latest startup thought and we might just tweet back.
💎 Will the Real Will Smith Please Stand Up?
Usually, we write something in this block about startup tips or current events. Not today baby. On this fine Friday, we wanna call out a founder that's been in the trenches and has built something special.
Will took his napkin startup concept to the moon and we wanted to call out the hard work he's been putting in. This kind of work ethic gets our team jazzed up in our weekly meetings. We love seeing people talk less and build more, and Will, you've taken home this week's MVP of the Week banner. 🏆
Readers: go check out his latest podcast to see what Acquiring Minds is all about.
