As part of the MongoDB for Startups program, I’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of founders, CTO’s and Developers to help them transform their ideas into functioning businesses. Nearly every startup with which I’ve worked has a unique set of challenges but they all have one thing in common: Financing the dream can be a challenge.
To help with this, many startups turn to VC’s, accelerators and tech companies to receive resources at reduced cost or for free.
I’ll be delivering a talk this May at MongoDB World called Zero to Live in 45: Build and launch your startup with free and low-cost services and I’d love to learn about the resources you’re using to build your startup.
I’m curious about your journey… what does your stack look like? Are you using any freemium, or low-cost options to help you launch?
If you’re in the MongoDB for Startups program - what do you enjoy about it? What features of Atlas are you using?
If you’re not in the program? Why not?
I appreciate any experience you’re willing to share!
P.S. Here are just a few of the free offerings I’ve seen - maybe you use some of these? If so, let me know!
- Netlify (Free tier)
- Heroku (Free tier)
- AWS (Free tier)
- MongoDB Atlas (Free tier & Startup credits via program)
- Digital Ocean Hatch
