Hi, Aditya Ahluwalia this side, me and Rishabh Bose created Kukie, a messenger to recommend awesome startup resources. It can suggest over 300 resources and articles to you across 40 categories, whenever you need :) Why did we build a bot for startup resources ? Well for the following 5 reasons - 1. We have been in the startup community since the past 18 months and the most frequent question I was asked is which tools to use to grow your business 2. This, interestingly has also been my most searched term on google - Free images, free social media management free HTML5 templates and so on. This lead me to discover https://www.producthunt.com/tech... @bramk, https://www.producthunt.com/tech... @bentossell @mubashariqbal, https://www.producthunt.com/tech... @craigbarber, https://www.producthunt.com/tech... @meseali on product hunt. 3. We wanted to share all the resources I used to learn and grow, in an easy and accessible format 4. We wanted to learn how to make a messenger bot :) 5. We wanted to make something different for the PH community to experience and consume :P Thus Kukie :) Here is Kukie's perpective on the first 20 of it's life - https://medium.com/@aditya_DIKY/... Now coming to the question that how is it different? 1. Kukie is being created based on feedback from its users. How? I released Kukie about 20 days ago to my friends and a few Startup Facebook groups. I read all the conversations between my bot and users (No analytics on messenger bots up till now) and figured out the most intuitive way of structuring a startup stash for a user. I was also able to see what I was missing and what I had categorised wrong. 2. Kukie learns from all your interactions and iterates keeping the conversations fresh and relevant 3. It only shows you what you ask for, Not more (probably less :P) 4. It will talk to you in a way. so that you feel that a friend is actually recommending these resources to you 5. It will also try and inspire you to go and achieve more :) 6. Now actually all the best tools and all the awesome stashes are just a click away in your pocket (If you have a Facebook messenger app) Kukie is a side project, my first Facebook bot to be precise. Otherwise I am the co-founder of 2 products. Planning to release both on PH soon :) Special thanks to that chatfuel guys @ddumik, @ivan_zamesin and @wladyslaw_fedorov for building such an awesome platform - Kukie was built without using a single line of code. We will be hanging around here the entire day to answer your questions, you can ask us anything you like :)

Would be good to see a list of these resources somewhere too... But I was waiting for this type of bot to surface! Was only a matter of time. I started making one a while back with the framework used for botwick - Didnt have the time to keep it going ha. Small feedback 'Checkout what I know' should be 'Check out what I know' - minor but first impression ;) Also I see you used content from my site :) Marketing Stack Basically I think this is a good idea for a bot but I do think it needs to accompany a website too.
Aditya AhluwaliaMaker@aadi193 · Founder - @DIKY, @Kukie, @Sentiments
@bentossell Thank you for the feedback, yes marketing stack has been a very big inspiration for us along with a lot of others. We wanted to do "check out what I know"but hit a character limit on Chatfuel CTA bar :P Lastly we felt that already a lot of amazing websites exist which you can refer for such tools... we wanted to build something different to consume. We plan to get a base website out soon for the same :)
Ben Tossell@bentossell · newCo
@aadi193 ahh I see haha! yeah I know there many different sites that offer product suggestions, articles etc - I like the idea of it being in this format, as a bot - but I think that there should be an accompanying site. I just feel that a bot may not be enough for this... its a great way to help people start consuming but then a site would be great to provide the deeper info

Knew I'd get replaced by an FBMsgr bot one day but... so soon? Have pity!
Aditya AhluwaliaMaker@aadi193 · Founder - @DIKY, @Kukie, @Sentiments
@bigyahu think of @Kukie_bot as an awesome extension all the mentors, PS - I think personal mentorship can never be replaced :)
