What startups can you submit to Microns
This week I finished one of the critical tasks for Microns. I finally analyzed all the feedback we received from our premium members and created a post with requirements for new founders.
I completed this task because we received 45 submissions in February but ended up publishing only 5. For various reasons, we rejected most of the startups. This post will create listings acceptance criteria and help us receive more quality submissions.
Besides this, I worked on integrating our transfer service to help buyers acquire startups through the platform. It will increase security and make the process easier. Also, it'll be optional, meaning you can use other services to complete the transaction. Overall, it was requested by most of you, so that I couldn't ignore this need.
Today I prepared three startups on the same theme. They're all about UI, templates, and e-commerce. Interesting businesses for someone who owns an agency or website builder to upsell services to the same customer base further.

🎉 Recently sold startup
This week we sold a small hybrid startup. It was an e-commerce store that sold Carrd templates and additionally provided custom development, aka agency. I see such hybrid business models increasingly because they're powerful enough and have a great synergy.
The great thing is that the founder listed his startup on a few other platforms but found the buyer only through Microns. It is a good example showing that only our marketplace holds appropriate demand, and we are moving in the right direction.
👍 Microns is not for everyone
Microns has already been one year and nine months. During this period, I had a bunch of chats, discussions, and acquisitions. So, I gathered all feedback from our buyers and created this post to help new sellers understand the demand side better.
In this post, you'll learn the categories of startups we accept, our decision about pre-revenue startups, forbidden startups, and proper valuations. I want people to associate Microns as a high-quality, secure, user-friendly marketplace.
My team will carefully check every aspect before publishing your project. It is crucial to read if you want to sell your startup. And yes, Microns is not for everyone :)
