Our Guide to Marketplaces, now summarized in a deck

By Angela, May 12, 2016

Six months ago, we published A Guide to Marketplaces. Marketplace companies comprise an important part of our portfolio and investment thesis and we recognized the shortage of content out there specifically geared toward marketplace startups. We compiled a lot of the insights we learned from working with great marketplace companies and wrote a handbook.

It was our first experience with this kind of project and we weren’t sure what the response would be. We’ve been so surprised by the reception: both the handbook and marketplace KPI dashboard have been downloaded over 20,000 times.  The guide has been translated into Japanese and a robot even took on the handbook on Medium (we’re happy to report that our version came out on top).

Today, we’re announcing the release of the Guide to Marketplace deck, where we summarized the original guide into a series of slides for a faster read and reference.

You can download the slide deck here. And if you’re interested in the full version of the handbook, it’s available as a PDF or ePub.

Special thanks to Grant Ognibene who has been interning with us over the past couple of months – he did much of the curation!

    Great stuff — we are nearly at the end of our angel round and are getting ready to launch our marketplace this month; needless to say our team is devouring publications like this. Thanks for all the fantastic content.

    Amazing content. I genuinely appreciate the differentiation from other models in the same field. I’m still making sure I have all the elements in place before I approach launching. Thank you for this! With a little bit of luck, the marketplace will grow big enough.
