Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Succinct, simple to consume, regular weekly updates to keep up with the hottest news in tech

    Cons: 

    Are you planning on making a Telegram channel as well?

    I like the simplicity of the service, its non-invasive, relaxed pace of updates and that it doesn't take my time away, yet providing all recent insights into tech in just a few sentences. Congrats to the makers!

    Love this info memo on steroids. Not a lumb of text waiting to be deleted but key-point facts that matter in the industry 🙌🏻 Would appreciate a Telegram channel. Keep the fire on this puppy lit 🔥

👋 Hey Hunters and thanks for the hunt @bramk A couple of months ago, I realized that I was spending WAY too much time reading TechCrunch etc. so I asked someone from my team to send me a 1-minute memo of the need-to-know tech news each week. Founders I shared it with loved it so we made a (nicer) public version of it 😊 🤓What’s The Tech Memo? An efficient way to keep an eye on what’s happening with major tech players without distracting us from working on our own companies/products. The Tech Memo is a single push notification a week with a 1-minute summary of the need-to-know news in mainstream tech. For now, you can get the text+video version via email or the video version via Messenger/Instagram. 🛠How is it made? The Tech Memo is made using a mix of deep learning, space dust and blockchai… Just joking 😋we gather the most shared news in technology each week and filter for relevance to keep the 6-10 most globally relevant ones. We then make a 2 sentence summary for each which we use in the weekly email and video. The design was made by master of landing pages cortes.design 👨‍🎨 🤔How does it compare to Sip, Morning Brew, The Hustle etc? The Tech Memo is a once-a-week minimalist solution to keep yourself up to date with high-level facts. It’s on the productivity side rather than entertainment so complements longer-form/more frequent publications nicely (I personally read and love The Hustle). 🚀What’s next? Iterate on the memo’s format, content and publication channels to continue helping busy founders/makers stay informed and productive! 💬Some of the feedback we’ve heard so far “I love it! Please continue to keep everything concise. It’s what I love most about it.” Young L. 🇺🇸 “Make it longer and add an audio version” — Tom P. 🇵🇱 “I prefer the written version to the video” — Rebecca S. 🇪🇸 Please be awesome and share your feedback/questions/ideas below 👇or directly to jeremiah@startuptracker.io! 🙏🙏🙏

@noellebaquiche Thanks @noellebaquiche — we use different forms of black and white magic + VR 😋 In all seriousness: we gather the most shared news in tech each week and filter for relevance to keep the 6-10 most relevant ones and made an efficient process out of it :-) I see SeedLegals is doing really well—what's the next country you're launching in or is that still a secret 😇?

Hahaha loved the “how its made” intro 😂 Kidding aside I thinks it a good way to filter through all the stuff that’s a waste of time. A features I’d like to see is receiving this via Telegram. Maybe its another way to differentiate. Good luck today! 💪🏻
