From the curator👨‍💻

Hi there!

So this week has been incredibly productive for a change. I've managed to find some great features this week, that I absolutely love and I'm sure you would too!
On a side a note, I've decided to change the time that The Slice will go out on Fridays to 11am EST. I also thought that I'd share my process on how I pick my features and what criteria I look for.

I get between 10-15 pitches a week to be featured on my newsletter, but I also do a lot of outreach and the majority of my features are the ones I have personally looked for and reached out to myself, but I'll usually include at least 2 from founders who have pitched me via email or Twitter. Here are the questions that I ask myself when I consider a potential feature,
  • Does it provide value to my audience? (Most important)
  • Does it fit the interest of my audience?
  • Would I genuinely use or recommend it?  
I'v also been playing around with the idea of having a blog, where I can post some long form essays. Btw, I have a Medium page where I have a few articles listed there, and if I go forward with this, I'll most probably move all my Medium posts there, but in the mean time, here are two articles I wrote last year that you might like.

The Problem Most Marketers Have Today.


In 2 Months I Analyzed And Wrote Copy For Close To 700 Seed Round Startups In London, New York, San Francisco And Los Angeles. Here's What I learnt.
