This is the most upvoted product ever on Product Hunt, and it's easy to understand why. It has become my one-stop shop for startup tools. Lots of crossover with Product Hunt, but the content there is neatly organized in categories that make sense when you're starting or managing your own business.
Rojo Villegas- Corporate Digital VP - Chef Company
Great Directory!

Creating your own startup can be overwhelming at times, but luckily there's a new directory called Startup Stash that contains everything you need to know, all in one place. The first thing you'll notice about Startup Stash is the simple grid layout that makes finding resources and tools exceedingly easy and manageable.

Ryan Gum- CEO, Attach
Hey all, these decks helped us a ton when putting together our own so hope you find it useful. My favorite deck has to be the Youtube deck - not because of the content of the deck but because of the story surrounding it: Firstly, in the press release I linked up on the page Chad Hurley (Youtube CEO at the time) uses Blockbuster as a positive analogy, "the … See more

It's competitive out there, and the competition for investor funds get's more and more ferocious by the minute. The pitch deck is one of the best ways to stand out from your competition, and these $400 million pitch decks have one thing in common, clear!

Startup Graveyard

History shouldn't have to repeat itself

Brendan Beirne- Product / strategy, Joojoo
Not terribly comprehensive but has some interesting content organized by type / vertical.
Megan O'Rorke- Product Manager, Capital One Labs
This site embodies a lesson that saved my life. When I moved to SF, my first startup failed within a few months. Like a car crash, failure is very different when you experience it yourself vs observe it. I took the failure personally. And got into negative thought cycle that nearly killed me. What I learned had a more profound impact on me than any produ… See more

Framework to help entrepreneurs w/ the first critical steps

I've been using this kinda with a grain of salt but definitely helps frame the right questions. Helps validate your idea, recruit your team, design and build your product, acquire customers, iterate toward Product-Market Fit, and successfully bootstrap or land funding.
Will Little- Managing Director at Prota Ventures
Thanks @dredurr! Hey Product Hunt! Startup Rocket was birthed out of the frustration of re-inventing the wheel every time we, the partners and advisors behind Prota Ventures, started validating a new idea, building a team, launching a product, and accelerating a business to a place where it made sense to raise capital. On the other side of the table, it a… See more
