Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Startup founders need some technical skills.

Here’s a list of skills to bring to your startup:

  1. Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets - you’ll use this for budgeting, forecasts, and numerous other applications.
  2. Data analysis - you should be familiar with Google analytics and other basic analytic tools to gather information about your sales and marketing efforts.
  3. Basic coding skills - you should be able to read HTML to make changes and update your website.
  4. WordPress - you may outsource the design and setup of your website but you should know enough about the backend to make text changes and minor updates.
  5. Design tools - you need to be familiar with design software for making logos, presentations, and other content pieces.
  6. Cloud - you should have a working knowledge of cloud tools since it’s the place you store your documents, run applications, and host your data.
  7. Collaboration tools - you should be able to use collaboration tools as it’s the primary method for communicating with others. 
  8. CRM automation - you should be able to set up emails and responders.

A founder does not have to be a specialist in technology but should have basic technical skills to run office automation, websites, and other systems.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
