What’s New with Venturism?

As you may have noticed – it’s been a while since we last sent out a newsletter.

The main reason? We were too busy building our products in public!

If you follow us on Twitter, you may have noticed we participated in On Deck NoCode. If you don’t, here’s a TL;DR:

2. We beta-tested Sneak-Peek and came in 2nd🥈 in ODNC

Sneak-Peek helps you build a product page in 2 mins and put your ideas to the ultimate test - email signups & pre-orders.

Marcus pitched Sneak-Peek to a huge audience of On Deck fellows, alums, staff, and judges – and it came in second place overall for all of On Deck No Code!

3. We built Shuffle (in 3 days.)

Shuffle is a new audio-only experience made to let you meet inspiring creators from around the world. It's like Chatroulette for creators – every time you Shuffle, your network expands.

How did we pull it off? Read the #buildinpublic thread here:

If the above got you curious about On Deck No Code, definitely consider joining the second Cohort. They are taking applications here as we speak.

With that, we hope to have given you an idea of what we’ve been up to in 2021.

We’re looking forward to taking Venturism to new heights, by continuing to help makers get their first 💯 customers online!

That’s all, folks!
Until Next time 👋!
