ICYMI – 1st Team
Hi Everyone 👋 ,
In case you missed it, last week we launched a new initiative to highlight the top agencies & service providers that work with startups. These vendors are all vouched for by VCs and Venture-backed founders that have worked with them directly.
Check out our first post below with Tintash, an overseas engineering firm that has worked with many notable startups and growth-stage companies.
If you’ve worked with a vendor directly or through a portfolio company, and you’d like to vouch for them, just email us their name and website (we’re firstname.lastname@example.org).
