Must-Read Startup Newsletters (if you’re a fan of Let’s Start Up)

Just a couple of months ago, I started the Let’s Start Up newsletter for founders, investors, startups, and friends. I’ve already sent out nine issues and momentum only continues to pick up.

I started the newsletter to expand my network and inspire others with my experiences as a tech founder. I hope that anyone interested in entrepreneurship, diversity and inclusivity, and tech will find something relevant in my posts.

In the words of a few subscribers:

“Hands down it’s the most authentically engaging content to cross my inbox in a while. Thank you.” -Nneoma

“I got my first newsletter from you and it was amazing. I was looking for some information related to non-tech founders building apps and I received your newsletter at the same time.” -Ritika Mehta

“I know close to nothing about the VC world but you make it feel very approachable and understandable. Look forward to reading more in the future!” -Joe Ray

But, there are so many other great newsletters and digests out there that I want to share with you. If you like my newsletter, I think you’ll love these!
