Startup Library for free from Lean Startup Evangelists

Hi Startup-er, in addition to the tools we’ve shared previously 200+ resources for Startups to Use, we would like to share our startup library. In it you are able to find the most valuable articles from Sam Altman, Paul Graham, Sequoia Capital, Mike Butcher, and some other players of the VC ecosystem. The library was created for entrepreneurs and startup founders as a set of useful templates, links, and tools. We are sure that your business would feel much better with it. What is more, it is free 🙂 and without any subscription.
