    Amazing tool if you need high-fi prototypes, marketing sites, mvp's! We used Webflow to build and launch our MVP - from scratch - in just three weeks and got voted #1 on PH last month (after Elon Musk's Boring Company). If you wanna read more about it: https://medium.com/spreadshare/h...

    The best way to validate is building a landing page to collect emails. Maybe drive some traffic to your site and see how people convert.

    @jaredsilver if your startup is bringing a new hardgood to the market, Kickstarter is a great way to test market demand (validate) and *hopefully* launch. The whole exercise makes you finely tune your messaging, and your numbers.

    Startups are all about building a great team of people. Sure, you can have an innovative product, but do you have the right people to get it going? Recruitee is an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) that is affordable and allows for collaborative hiring. This way, you can find the minds that mesh best with your startup's ultimate goals and values.

    It isn't a startup without​ a Medium article! All kidding aside, Medium let's your biggest fans get the inside scoop and a better understanding of what you're trying to do with your startup. I highly recommend having a presence there, if not starting a publication to curate all the articles related to your company.

    Business Model Generation

    I've used the business model canvas (and canvases like it) for years as part of validating new products and businesses, including my current business. It's a great way to work through the high risk portions of a business model. It's easy to use (I like to print it out in large format and then use sticky notes for discussion).

    It allows you to record a fair amount of interactions with your site for free. Super important to see where visitors are looking at, how do they navigate and click from page to page.
