Startup news is all about funding, million/billion dollar valuations and acquisitions, right?
What about other milestones a startup hits in its journey? (Getting the first 100 users, generating revenue, adding new features)

At Early-stage News. we don't consider a milestone to be small or insignificant. We send a weekly newsletter with launch, milestone, feature and other updates from early-stage startups and side-projects

Made for makers

You work tirelessly to get your idea off the ground and when you hit a milestone that is special to you, considering where you started from, you're let down because you read startup stories revolving around these topics:
'Theranoz attained unicorn status'
'Y Messenger bagged millions of $$$ in funding'
'Don't Jump Bikes has been acquired by a silicon valley tech giant'
and you feel your milestone isn't good enough to be made known to
the world.

Isn't there a startup news platform where you can let the world know about a milestone (that is different from the conventional stories) that your startup hit recently?

There is,now!

At Early-stage News we'll be equally excited to read milestones like:
"Hey! My startup got its first 100 users"
"My side-project is now profitable"
"I finally launched a side-project"

We consider no milestone to be small or insignificant. If you're working on an early-stage startup or a side-project, send us a milestone your project hit recently.

Why, you ask?
1.) You keep users, fans, startup enthusiasts, VCs and other makers updated on your project's progress.
2.) You stay motivated (and accountable) to keep shipping and moving forward

A milestone update is a headline (11 words or lesser) which links to a specific URL of your choice and looks something like this:
