🎢 The Coachella of Startup Ideas

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.πŸ‘‡

Today's Menu:

  • πŸ’₯ Founder wins that'll inspire you more than Tony Robbins
  • 🎢 Β 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. β˜•οΈ

πŸ’Ž 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.

His name? Will Smith. (Not the guy from the oscar meme you all shared). Will Smith from Kernal. The startup idea he's building: Indie Hackers for Acquisition Entrepreneurs.

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. πŸ†
