Startups wanted to tell their tale

Wanted: As many exciting early stage startups as possible to tell us their step by step talestartups wanted

At Startacus, we appreciate that when you’re in the early stages of starting your own business and launching your startup, a little (or on this occasion regular) publicity is a rather important commodity.

We thought long and hard about how we could help and have decided to use our platform to help you publicise your work and help other startups at the same time. So, we’re launching an open call for all self starters / entrepreneurs / startups to write a series of blog posts (yep - not just one) over a 6, 8, or 10 week period.

Who can take part?

We are keen to hear from early stage startups - (either pre launch or who have launched in the last 6 months or so). Been in business a bit longer and still would like to contribute to the site? Then we have other options for you! Our self interview and contributors wanted links are rather conveniently included at this point!

Understandably not every entry can be featured, but we will consider everyone who has a startup story to tell and has some useful weekly tidbits of advice to share.

What we want...

Whilst this is a great platform to tell your own tale - ultimately we want your weekly blog posts to offer the chance for other Startacus members to be informed, learn, inspired, and encouraged by your words of wisdom. So, stuff like...

  • Important tips on startup lessons learned
  • Anecdotal stories and experiences that offer inspiration to others
  • Opinion pieces on what is right / wrong / and indifferent with the ‘startup scene’...
  • News updates (not press releases) on your current progress / or that big news announcement
  • Diary based pieces that link from one week to the next...
  • A simple weekly blog post on your journey that week..

We require a commitment that you would be happy to submit a weekly post for a period of 6, 8, or 10 weeks. We would also need you to keep the content to a maximum 700 words per article and we would allow for a link to be included in the article that takes our readers to your own site / social network link etc.

Whilst we appreciate that not all of you may want to write a startup encyclopedia on everything you ever did or didn’t do - we think that there are many of you out there who are itching to get telling your tale.

Look at Craig McDonald’s epic 3 part series on So you want to build a high growth web startup as a good example of what we’re looking for and likewise Cally Russell's article Pivots...Making mistakes, & Learning - An Entrepreneurs Tale and of course Eimer Peters’ guest post “The urge to create something is huge” . They all rock and are pretty good examples of what you could do.

What you get...

The benefits of guest writing for Startacus are obvious- free exposure to an interested community of fellow self starters, the chance to tell everyone what exactly you are up to, plus a valuable link to your work or website.

Sadly, we can’t presently offer any financial remuneration for your work, but we can offer you a platform to showcase and profile your writing skills and expose your work and startup to a growing and vibrant community.

How to Apply?

Simply email us to with a brief synopsis of what you’re about, and what you’d like to write about and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
