*: The tools marked with superscript * are created by me for the startup community.
α: The tools marked with superscript α are bleedding edge tools but are featured here because they show promise in a category with much need-gap.
I wanted a simple, fast way to find the best tool for a startup task on demand and So I created StartupToolchain.
I have to strike a balance between 'Which tool gets a startup to the market fast without much technical debt?' vs 'Which is the most used tool in this category?' vs 'Which tool can be afforded by a bootstrapping founder' vs 'Which tool can be afforded by a well funded founder'. This is not an exhaustive list of startup tools, but best tools for a startup task based upon above criteria.
This toolchain will never be completed, But I will keep adding tools until I can. The category you're looking for might get added then.
I try my best to limit my personal bias in the selection of the tools, but like every other human activity I cannot eliminate bias completely. So, I'm happy to receive positive criticisms to help fix the biases. I often find new tools, categories through recommendations from the users who have subject matter experience.
I'm open to adding products and services from new upcoming startups provided it solves the following criteria -
Sorry that cannot happen due to conflict of interest. If your product fits in ST, please tweet to me.
Since I don't take payment for placing a product or have referral links it's up to you to keep StartupToolchain alive.
