    Taskade

    A minimal and sharable task list.

    Extremely simple to start a list and collaborate with your team on tasks. Very pretty too.

    Hands down, one of the best project management, collaboration tools. They have a great free tier which should be good for startups.

    The free tier is *very* feature rich, and I use it as a private version control of sorts for data science projects with stakeholders who use Jupyter Notebooks, but aren't familiar with Git commands.

    This is my go-to tool for outbound social media because it is hands-down the easiest to use and offers great value. Doesn't yet do automated recycling of posts, but had the flexibility to build an add-on for it - http://repeatpost.com

    Airtable

    Realtime spreadsheet-database hybrid

    A lot of times, you're looking for tools to manage small parts of your startup. Airtable is perfect for such use cases! You can create your own "micro-application" to manage your project, sales, blog schedule or whatever else you want. No need for full-fledged software to manage each task. It's basically a supercharged Excel with a great UI.

    Amazingly simple graphic design

    Ola KingFounder, Sweeft · Written
    This is probably the only tool you will need to make beautiful graphics on social media without needing to use photoshop or even have any design skills. It's stupid simple to use, and it also has an iOS app that is just as powerful. The free version is powerful enough for most use cases.

    Showing someone on my team something specific, or how to execute a task by annotating a screenshot with CloudApp is actually faster and easier than explaining it to them.
