Can you suggest me google alerts free alternatives please? I want to create a startup that resells and installs software. I need to hear about every new online opportunity for that specific software.

Hi everybody. I think I was clear.

I am conducting a market research to choose the software I want to resell. I want to know about all the opportunities in my country (and worldwide) because, firstly, I want to choose which technology to work with, and secondly, I want to apply massively when the time comes .

Thank you.

Startups – Rapid Growth and Innovation is in Our Very Nature!

I’m young, have no experience, and I’m nervous about a saturated market!!

I’m 18 and just graduated high school. I want to make a bipartisan political news website but who doesn’t? From what I can tell, online news is a saturated market. Everyone wants to make their own newspaper. Is it even worth it to try? I’m enlisting in the Air Force so I need it to be online and not paper, but I keep putting off creating the website because I think it’ll just flop. Am I overthinking this or is it genuinely a good idea to just stop before I go to far into it and fail? I’ve never started a business before and going into the military makes me think that I won’t really have the time for it. I could wait until I’m out of the service but why put off for four years what I could start today? Any advice at all is greatly appreciated!

Need suggestions about equity split between founders for a SaaS product

Hi,

I have a question about founder equity-split.

3 months back, me and one of my acquaintance started working on a SaaS idea. It was mostly an already existing idea (a knowledge-base system) but my cofounder convinced me that it's still worth building because he knows there are potential customers and it might be a good way to get started with SaaS in general.

So I took care of all-things-tech and put up an MVP in roughly two months. We ran campaigns (my cofounder knows multiple potential customers and is well resourced in that sense) but haven't had a paying customer yet (might be due to COVID, but of course the product might be the cause as well).

Now fast forward one month, we are trying to adapt our solution for the Shopify ecosystem, and my cofounder introduced me to another guy who's working with Shopify app companies for the last 3-4 years. His proposal is to onboard him as a cofounder, which I'm also happy to, but now the big question for me is,

"How should the equity be divided among three or us?"

I proposed it to be split half between me and my first co-founder, and slightly less to the newly onboarded guy. But my co-founder doesn't seem to agree with equal split, he thinks I should have a lesser equity share and said that that's usually the case with other SaaS companies too because SaaS is marketing intensive.

I was wondering if someone is aware of what the right split could be (or what's the usual trend) and can share that knowledge here.

PS: I know, I should've talked all this out in the very beginning, that's a mistake on my part.

Edit: Anouther question, Even If I end up convincing him for equal split, is it really a good idea to move ahead in your opinion? (because for sure he has thought that either I'm brining less value or he wants to have the bigger share irrespective of anything).
