I recently left public accounting to join a start up. I don’t have too many connections in this world yet, does anyone have recommendations for either articles, books or other sources of information I could use to get an understanding of the startup world and how I can make the right career choices moving forward. - *I’m on the product manager side*

Thanks in advance!

Hi 👋 Any good UX books for senior designer level that helps with strategy, and good frameworks, or anything that will help me with my thought process?

Will appreciate any suggestions. Thanks! 🙏🏻

I'm looking for a technical cofounder in the Bay Area.

I'm working on a new startup, and I think I've got something really good. The tech itself is nothing new (no blockchain, AI, fancy algorithm, etc.) The vision requires only tried and tested tech (read full-stack engineer).

I know business (ops/marketing/sales/fundraising/etc), and pretend to know tech... I'm looking for someone who can actually execute on that side.

I can offer equity and nominal pay if necessary. Ping me if interested!
