The YC Seed Deck Template → 


"I’ve written about pitching before, and realized that what we were missing is a clear template of how founders should lay out their story through slides. This deck is a template for how I think companies should build seed decks."

 ADVICE   GIRLBOSS / DEENA DREWIS

4 finance founders share the real-talk business advice they wish they'd gotten → 

"Gray relays an anecdote about a woman who raised a fund and tells pretty much every woman who comes in to pitch to double the numbers she put down in her projections. And when men come in, she cuts the numbers in half. 'It's not women’s fault; it's just that we've been socialized to conserve money instead of grow it,” she says, “So think bigger. That’s the biggest one.'"

 OPPORTUNITY   BIRCHBOX

The Future Starts Now Fund → 


"Many of us face obstacles in our everyday lives that hold us back from achieving our dreams. That's why we created The Future Starts Now Fund to help remove some of those barriers and give four of you (regardless of gender identity, race, and other labels) $5,000 to support your goals whether it's chasing a dream job or finally starting a personal project."
IGC Founder Feature: Meha Agrawal → 

As one of the earliest employees at both The Muse and Stitch Fix, Meha Agrawal has seen firsthand how hard startups are. The hours can be long, employees usually wear multiple hats, and the future is unpredictable. Luckily for us, none of that stopped this former software engineer from starting her company SILK + SONDER in 2017. Every month, the S+S team of productivity, design, and content experts creates a new themed notebook. Once they're filled end to end with bullet journal-inspired planning frameworks and lifestyle content, they're delivered straight to doorsteps across the nation. IGC HQ is obsessed with their gorgeous layouts and new monthly stories and poems — and if you're looking for an excuse to (re)start a resolution, S+S planners are the perfect clean slate to look forward to every month!

"There are concrete, evidence-based things every worker can do to help workplaces be places we want to work." The big ones according to the Times: find a sense of purpose, make time for life outside of work, find a rabbi, hire smartly, treat people equally, and share responsibility.
