5 Ways to get a morning buzz without coffee

by: Startacus Admin ~ 29th January 2015
As you know we are rather fond of coffee here at Startacus, and we are not ashamed to admit it. Between balancing hectic work lives and battling with the end-of-the-world style weather conditions of late, the thought of a fresh cup of coffee, steaming intoxicating vapours to our brains, is one of the best motivators imaginable. Mind boggingly, some people aren’t as in love with this ebony e...

by: Startacus Admin ~ 27th January 2015
For a remarkable amount of startups, their first office space will probably come from an incubator or accelerator programme. That said, most of these programmes aren’t going to fork out for a private office and dedicated server, and as a result, startups tend to use shared, open plan office spaces.At first it may seem kind of juvenile, like a school or college study room or something, but fr...

Anatomy of a Pivot - Wyatt Cavalier of Empty Pocket Traders shares his thoughts

by: Startacus Admin ~ 17th June 2014
One year ago, we launched Empty Pocket Traders with the aim of bringing gourmet Fairtrade coffee to our customers’ door--through their letterboxes to be precise.

What does your choice of coffee say about you as a startup founder?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 9th April 2014
If you are a regular (or even an irregular) visitor to the world of Startacus, you will no doubt have noticed that we have gone a little bonkers in recent weeks. Not all the time of course (too much of a good thing and all that) but there has been on occasion, evidence of a slow, yet decided, decline into something which could be equated with lunacy. Not least of which, has been the ever increasi...

Coffitivity - Do coffee shop noises increase productivity?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 6th April 2014
As I write this, I am surrounded by a familiar din of clanking cutlery, relaxed murmurs, the gentle whoosh of a coffee steamer and the occasional clatter of loose change being dropped into a grateful tip bowl…am i in a coffee shop you ask?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 17th July 2013
As anyone who knows us in real life, or even follows us on Twitter can vouch for, we’re big fans of coffee here at Startacus. The day doesn’t really begin until we’ve had that first caffeine fix. Therefore when we hear about new startups in or around the coffee sector, we quite frankly get a tad excited. And that’s exactly what happened when we first heard about our latest ...

Working from a Coffee Shop - the ground rules

by: Startacus Admin ~ 22nd July 2012
It’s virtually impossible not to walk into any coffee shop these days without seeing someone sitting there, frantically working away on their laptop or notebook. The free wi-fi, the fresh coffee and of course none of the usual home distractions make the coffee shop a perfect alternative office for many of us.
