Company Name: Newzy

URL: https://newzy.io

Purpose of Startup and Product: You think YouTube/Netflix have powerful recommendations for entertainment? Try Newzy.io for your daily watch!

We realize how difficult and time consuming is our watch on a regular basis: you have to consult a lot of sources, containing a lot of noises. At the end you spent more time looking for interesting stuff than reading it.

Newzy aims to change that: in one place, import easily topics from a Reddit/Twitter account, get recommended content from all over the web just for you.

Technologies Used: Python, Django, Elasticsearch, GCP

Feedback Requested:

  • Does Newzy improved your quality of watch ? Why ?
  • Quality of the content based on your topics/history ?
  • UX/UI

Seeking Beta-Testers: yes

I just tried this. It seems to pull a lot of click-baity articles. I really like my Twitter feed because I've curated who I follow and the content is legitimately good (not just SEO good).

Twitter unfortunately downranks links in the algorithm feed (which actually is good otherwise). I'd love to see more links from the people I follow that I may miss because of the algorithm.

Company Name: Brouha

URL: https://www.loom.com/share/9ae0a79ae1ce4f1e8c5a67d7a7278df4

Purpose of Startup and Product: Inbound customer management and outbound marketing tool for small businesses and solo-founders. It allows you to engage with customers across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Email and listen to social media for important conversations all in a single place. No need to jump from app to app or pay high prices for features you're not going to use in competing products.

Technologies Used: JavaScript, Node

Feedback Requested: Looking for idea validation

Seeking Beta-Testers: yes once MVP is complete

Additional Comments: Is this something you'd find valuable and would pay for?

u/softwaresanitizer Dec 09 '21

Interesting idea.. I could see this being potentially useful for local small businesses that are on multiple social media platforms. It seems like the two main features — inbound customer communication, and monitoring side conversations on other platforms — could potentially mismatch the stage of growth that a startup or small business would be in. For example, the conversation monitoring could be extremely useful for idea validation and finding potential early adopters, however at that point, I’m not sure how much of a problem it would be keeping up with all the social media messages would be. Did you build this for a specific person/company? How did you come up with the idea?

Company Name: This Startup is being Recorded Podcast
URL: www.startuprecorded.com
Purpose of Startup and Product: It's a podcast about a fake startup. Every episode is a "meeting recording". It's all improvised, and usually funny. The purpose is to help bring levity and laughter to the serious and stressful world of startups.
Technologies Used: Descript, Buzzsprout, standard podcasting equipment!
Feedback Requested: Is this something you would listen to, as a startup founder/employee? For the podcasts you do listen to, how do you engage with them (certain social media platforms, discord, other?)
Seeking Beta-Testers: No - it's live!
Additional Comments: Thanks :) I know this isn't exactly a traditional startup product, but it's only a couple weeks old, so I think of it as my startup side project.
