FounderKit was a product that was developed in-house at Super, a 4 man startup studio led by two YC founders. In my 8 months there, it was the product that gained the most traction.
(10k users, 60k ARR)
FounderKit was a community where pre-vetted, experienced founders rated and reviewed products to help young founders quickly discover the best tools to use as they build their first company. We quickly became viral in the entrepreneurship community, especially among first-time founders, due to our high signal-noise ratio.
In addition to the main product rate/review feature, we allowed for companies to offer discounts to their products through FounderKit Deals, our main monetization feature.
I started work on this product post-MVP and was working on a major redesign of the product to handle v2 features. Concurrently, I was developing the community.
However, the product was considered lacking potential mid-redesign and efforts to work on it was shelved in favor of other ventures. I left the team soon after to pursue other opportunities as well.
Product development has since restarted and FounderKit Jobs has been launched.
