The AngelList Founder Stack is god-sent for new startup founders
Let 1000s of (startups) ideas blossom
Note: Feel free to forward this article to new founders
The AngelList’s Stack for Founders is fantastic! They’ve made it super easy for founders to convert ideas into startups.
The time to start a company used to be very manual involving multiple stakeholders and used to take weeks, or months depending on your location — dealing with lawyers, incorporating the company, choosing bank accounts, getting investors, etc.
Now it’s a matter of days.
Unlike Stripe Atlas and other tools in market, the AngelList Founder Stack is 100% built for startup founders who want to raise venture capital, eg. incorporate a Delaware C Corp, hire employees, raise funds from investors, etc.
Wasn’t built for folks who want to start consulting services, etc.
I have a couple of latent ideas I’m tempted to incubate because of this.
I can also see AngelList building or integrating more solutions for founders and investors in the future. This can make the platform more powerful and sticky. Thinking out loud:
Tax automation for startups
Corporate card issuance for employees
Vendor or R&D credits for new startups
BaaS for all SMBs beyond their startups
A more seamless integration between their venture and recruiting platform
Integration with startup M&A marketplace Microacquire
Secondary market for founder, investor, and employee shares
Platform for funds that invests in Non Qualified Investments (NQIs)
Creation of on-chain entities (DAOs etc) and everything that comes with this
More fleshed out investor, employee, and advisor update tool
AngelList is the default platform for new investors. Now, we’re seeing them become the default platform for founders!
