Removed user account requirement

February 22, 2020

I decided to remove user accounts as a prerequisite to submitting a founder on


  1. It encourages more people to post founders. As the website is still in its infancy, it allows me to build trust.
  2. Offloads complexity. By not requiring user accounts, I reduce the amount of engineering maintenance. This is just a fun side project, so I would like to be more thrifty with my time when I launch real businesses.


  1. Limits potential users from signing up now and reaching out in the future. I still have the subscribe button on the front page though.
