Welcome to Startup Junkies
The focus of Startup Junkies is the startup stage which, by our definition, includes both opportunity identification and launch.
If you’re an entrepreneur who needs to get going fast with a new venture and wants to learn from others, this is the place for you.
We bring together both the theory and practice of successful startup entrepreneurship.
While our backgrounds are in the technology sector, the lessons shared here will be beneficial to almost any entrepreneur.
Our preference is for creating low-cost startup strategies so that the chump’s game of chasing outside capital can be avoided.
Since 2004 Startup Junkies has been designing, managing, and curating a world-class ecosystem of entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, academics, mentors, advisers, consultants, and partners, in which it applies the best practices in everything from execution to deployment, launch, funding, growth, and exit.

Do you recall the trial that ended a week ago in which Ellen Pao charged her former employer with discriminating against her on the basis of sex and race? She not only lost but was thoroughly trounced by the jury.
Well now, that very same Ellen Pao, victim of sexual and race discrimination, openly admits to implementing a policy at Reddit where she’s still CEO for some unfathomable reason that discriminates against people for being white and male. (Perhaps she is still CEO because Reddit fears the same legal assault as her former employer and is moving cautiously to build a case for firing her?)
How to rank well enough to get on the first Google SERP
From year to year, the only thing you can count on in local search results is change.
Here are the latest guesstimations on how to do well with Google.
The Scorpion and the Frog
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion
says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”
The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”
Replies the scorpion: “It’s my nature…”
