Best Startup Articles

I’m a big fan of startups. Every morning without fail the first apps opened are Twitter, Fast Company, Business Insider, TechCrunch and more recently Quora to find out what is happening in the startup world. I have been doing this religiously for the past 3 years and have amassed quite a list of web clippings thanks to the wonderful Pocket App. Everything from advice, trends, learning code, success and failures mentioned is covered, this is just a little list of articles I just keep on coming back to.

1. Vinicius Vacanti’s blog is a great read. I especially like this his article on how to find a technical co-founder.

2. Dan Martell has some cracking insights about startups, life hacks and sales.

3. Jason Goldberg, CEO of Fab.com, wrote this blog post which could easily be the basis for a bestselling book. An amazing, thorough list of startup values.
