Its been a minute, since the last newsletter - so i will start by saying, I hope things are good and that you are having an AMAZING summer ☀️🕶️🍦
Full disclosure, have been in a state of founder overwhelm, overthinking, and general WTF am i doing - hence the radio silence. 😮💨 But am coming out of it now, and by building out some automation in Airtable / Softr and Make, things are slowly improving. (Not to mention some lovely community members volunteering to help as well).
With that, see you next week - July 20th, for our first ever Queens (LIC) coworking day (10 mins from Grand Central). Perfect for non-technical and No-Code founders, or those looking for business mentoring.

🔮 Themes for future events? 🔮
A few weeks ago, I asked folks in our WhatsApp / Slack groups for ideas on subjects they are interested in, and I was completely blown away! Not only the number of ideas submitted, but also by the number of folks who volunteered to hold workshops and office hours too.
A MASSIVE shout out to everyone who got in touch and volunteered. ❤️💪
But which ideas are the most important to you? Do you love AI, want to hire a Virtual Assistant, really need sales help??? - or have your own ideas?
Here's the quick survey! Tell us what you think, and feel free to throw out new ideas, or even volunteer yourself (it's not too late).

🛠️ Resources 🧰
👩💻 Startup Founder Daily just launched - think Product Hunt, but with a different cycle (weekly voting windows) and not just about “products” so you can share your idea stage startups! Take a look if you want to get a sense of early product market fit research / advocates etc. As spotted on Day One
💰 NY Grant Opportunities. Some are for more established businesses, but many for startups. https://www.technyc.org/incentives
🧐 Customer research / Discovery questions - This is GOLD!!!! from the team at Wolves not Sheep, via the amazing community at Day One (clearly there is a pattern here 😉). Highly recommend using this, if you are trying to figure out who your target customers are / as well as their real pain points.
