Share your startup (April 2017)


Welcome to r/startups, a community for all backgrounds, levels of expertise, and business experience. Startups are companies that are designed to grow/scale rapidly. We are a forum of persons involved with/looking to get involved with startups that are working towards unbiased and anonymous feedback, advice, ideas, and discussion.

Please use the "report" button on spam and off-topic commentary.


We have a procedure for AMA's, please read it here.
Any AMA's not going through this procedure will be removed.


  1. only. Discuss, summarize, and comment upon any link you include. Posts need at least 200 characters of discussion.

  2. Relevant Content Only: We are a community of discussion, not a marketing channel. Do not solicit private messages outside of the two pinned threads. No promotional posts.

  3. No direct sales and/or advertisements for personal gain. This includes spamming your udemy course. Details. You MAY share your startup in the Share Your Startup thread (stickied at the top of /r/startups ).

  4. Submissions are for discussing methodologies, experiences, tactics, strategies, techniques, markets, and other such things WITHOUT tying them directly to your own project using its name or URL.

  5. Submissions from new accounts or from accounts with fewer than 10 karma will be removed.

  6. If you are submitting your own blog content, the full body of the content must be included in the post, properly formatted for reddit.
    A link to the original blog post is allowed.
    One exception: you are allowed to make a (lengthy!) summary of the post if your content is longer than 2000 words.
    All other rules still apply about what type of content may be posted here.

  7. All Feedback Requests(including surveys/polls), Support Requests (hiring, etc), and Offers to Support (links to resources/tools/communities, self promotion of your services/tools) belong in our Weekly Feedback and Support Thread. You are invited to repost each week. You are encouraged to give to others in the thread if you expect to take from the community.

  8. The mods have the final say on things. They can exercise their best judgement at any time to help make this sub more beneficial to the subscribers.
