Building Something New 🥳

We *love* bragging about founders & startups, and we want to make it easier for everyone to build in public & showcase all of the awesome stuff they're working on.

Think of this as your Ship Button 🚢 or your Launch Button 🚀. This is your public bulletin board, your fan club.

Did you just...
🎁 Release a new feature or bug-fix?
👀 Buy a new domain?
💌 Launch a new campaign?
🙌 Announce a new role on your team?
💸 Raise a new round of funding?
🥳 Even start an entire company?

Whatever it is, no matter how big or small, we want to help spread the word on what you've been building and brag about you to everyone. It doesn't have to be a tool that’s a part of your startup — you should share even if it's a side-project that's not for a company!

Yes, all you have to do is press that fun 'I Have An Announcement!' button and fill out the form. The policy is: anything that can be tweeted (announcements, updates, product launches, design changes, hiring or funding shoutouts, etc.) can be turned into free marketing for you!

New announcements will be posted here in daily cycles for the whole world to see 🌎.

Or You Can Always Email Us Your Announcements (Whatever Is Easier)
