Minimal viable poetry

CoFounder Weekly. Issue #72. December 8, 2019.

Away’s CEO overworked her team,

some found it fair, others found it mean.

Peloton’s ad caused their stock to crater.

Then a gin company meme'd it a few days later.

Spotify wrapped a year in review,

Our greeting cards rose all the way to #2.

…by you…

thank you.

This is CoFounder Weekly, a startup newsletter.

CoFounder Weekly #71: December 1, 2019

Gobble gobble!

We interrupt your usual Sunday CFW programming with a special announcement:

We made CFW greeting cards!

…and we’re excited to share them with y’all, just in time for the holidays.

Startups are hard. What better way to ride the startup rollercoaster than to send a friend a greeting card to celebrate the highs and lows 🎢.

Have a friend who just raised a round? Send this:

Want to reduce churn?

We launched today on Product Hunt! At the time of this writing, we’re #3 on the leaderboard. What’s cooler than #3……………...? Being #1!

We made a 5-pack, and partnered with the talented Ueli Johner on the illustrations. 

To express our gratitude to you, our weird and funky subscribers, use discount code “cofounderweekly” for 20% off a 5-pack.

So, to recap:

Meet a CFW reader (follow-up)

Last week, 54 readers signed up for our experiment to meet another CFW reader.

Thanks for participating! It was fun playing digital matchmaker.

We used heuristics like “Hey, you both are building SaaS startups” or “You’re both in grad school studying entrepreneurship” or “You’re both indie developers who build cool websites”. If we collect a bit more data, we could probably make introductions on more dimensions.

Should we do it again? Feedback welcome — we’d love to hear who you’re trying to meet.


Intros R’ Us,

Greg & Wiz

This week, let’s try an experiment.

Enter your name here to be introduced to a fellow CoFounder Weekly reader.

We’ll try out best to matchmake you to someone relevant. Or maybe someone irrelevant.

🥣 CeReAl PaRtY Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out last Sunday to our CFW New York Chapter’s CeReAl PaRtY! 22 servings of cereal and 43 varieties of milk were served. We talked a lot about dating in a digital world — how algorithms can do a better job of inferring potential good matches, where astrology could fit into all this, and the importance of developing your own mental models around dating.
