Top 35 Startups missed by TechCrunch. Who Hosts That

Fri, 2nd November 2012, 15:21

StartupPlays was created to increase the success rates of startups, and as part of their efforts, every few months they put together a list and title it the ‘Top 35 Startups that TechCrunch Missed’. As stated on their site, building something new and innovative is an exciting process, but launching it for the world to see and getting those first users is a rush like no other!

The people at StartupPlays are right. Running a startup is hard. Articulating an idea, sharing the vision, getting access to the movers and shakers in the startup field, building the product, hiring talented people, getting access to capital, supporting customers – the list goes on and on. It’s an epic struggle.

When and if the pieces of the puzzle finally fall into place and the startup begins to get noticed, all the energy and effort start to be rewarded as your idea gets traction and your website gains traffic. Yet even with the most thought out and well executed plan, it can be sabotaged by picking the wrong web host!
