Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2007
KillerStartups.com, a site that implements the opinion of the people to help predict the fate of internet startups, just became three months old.
"We launched KillerStartups.com with the idea of making it like Digg + Techcrunch," said Gonzalo Arzuaga, founder of the site. "Soon, it evolved into a place where people interested in the internet could go and discover great new startups."
The motto of KillerStartups is "tapping the wisdom of the crowd to find the next internet big thing." Site readers check out the constantly growing list of startups reviewed and vote as to what they think will happen to the startups. This user driven internet startups community is where entrepreneurs, investors, and bloggers are heading to stay updated on the up-and-coming internet startups.
Each review includes a report of what the startup is about, what they say about themselves, why they might be a killer startup, and what some of the problems might be. A fact folder where the reviewed startups can update various information including funding, foundation information, site traffic, and more is built-in at the bottom of each review. KillerStartups also makes it easy for users to contact the startups that interest them.
Within only three months, KillerStartups has reached several milestones. The site has been climbing the Alexa rankings, making it to 13,000 several times. Though the site has only been available for three months, they have managed to grow a community of readers larger than many sites that have been around for over a year.
KillerStartups has recently been working on content partnerships. Selected reviews from KillerStartups.com can already be seen daily on Profy.com, FranticIndustries.com, CenterNetworks.com and EverybodyGoTo.com. Many other sites are interested in partnerships as well, and deals are in the works.
KillerStartups tops every other site currently available in terms of the amount of newly reviewed internet startups it offers everyday. There are already over 800 startups reviewed, the top startup having over 100 "killer" votes and another 20+ startups are being reviewed daily.
The response to KillerStartups has been overwhelmingly positive:
"KillerStartups is really well done," wrote Ouriel from TechCrunch FR. "The user experience is really cool. I know there are already tons of Web2.0 directories. But this one mixes quite well review/voting/rating/poll/community features and the structure of the website is original."
HireVue wrote, "I have to say that this site is very, very cool and I found a few companies on the site already that I have started using."
Tomorrow's Playground mentioned, "It's a pretty good way to keep abreast of what's new out. And also a nice white board for a bit of inspiration."
