Experience the AI Startup Revolution Now!
This week I worked on the Transfer service (coming soon), explored the AI field, and learned a lot about ChatGPT, DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion.
You'll ask why? Because we already accepted the first startups that are built using these technologies, and for me, it's so much fun to understand how they work under the hood.
Besides this, we sold a few startups this week and more in the discussion phase. I'm so happy that Microns works for our community and that people benefit from it.
Also, if you like video content about startups from our site, you can subscribe to my friend Shlomo. He is recording videos on YouTube about different financial topics. Recently, he reviewed one of our listings.

🎉 Recently sold startup
Last week we sold this small project from Joe. As you can see, the project was listed at the start of December and sold at the end of February (almost three months). Some deals take time, and patience pays off.
The most important is that the buyer received not only digital assets but also an insanely valuable connection. The seller is a really cool guy who runs a bunch of different online businesses and knows Sam Parr from the Hustle :))
📈 Monthly update
February wasn't the best month for us. However, we grew linearly and already set up our user base, which regularly visits the site and engages.
We sold only three startups that month, and overall winter activity is lower than in spring or summer. I hope we'll have better metrics in March.
On this note, we crossed $2k MRR in revenue thanks to our premium members. I'm glad to have a subscription on the demand side because it drastically raises the quality of conversations and shows only serious buyers. As a result, a better experience for sellers.
Also, we carefully check our supply side to achieve the same effect for buyers because we already understand their requirements and expectations.
For me, revenue is just a result of your decisions and actions. The better you understand your audience, their pains, and their needs, the more accurate decisions you can make. Building a startup is always like walking in the dark. It takes work. You always try to understand the place where you are and try to find the light.
Some decisions could be made via data. Some decisions are intuitive. In any case, you need to be in the shoes that wear your users to build a good product.
