Or perhaps a model is copied from a successful startup in a foreign market, and executed in a home market. Personally I can’t imagine working on a problem that I am less than fanatical about solving. How A Dancing Cat Doubled Our Conversion Rate Here at Strikingly we’ve recently rolled out a new referral system that rewards you with free periods of our Pro plan for each friend you invite. We were wondering about how to increase the usage of this new system. Here’s what our invitation page looked like before: It’s just a basic form – enter your name and some email addresses and you can tell your friends about Striking.ly.

How I hacked Slack into a community platform with Typeform In the last few weeks I built a Slack community around digital nomads called #nomads. It now has over 1,250 members that talk to each other daily. Slack was originally meant as a team communication platform, but it functions surprisingly well at large-scale as a community platform.

My challenge is to actually finish and launch my projects. So for the next 12 months, I’ve set the goal to launch 12 startups in 12 months. Problem one: finishing Startup = Growth September 2012 A startup is a company designed to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make a company a startup.
