It’s a hard life, being a startup founder. Overheads are high and turnovers are often low, meaning that it is absolutely crucial that important factors – such as staff retention or product adoption – remain positive. Here are a number of digital or online solutions for your startup.
GoCo is a neat little platform that takes the hard work out of onboarding new hires and keeping staff happy. Talent is something that all companies rely on for success, so making it easier to find and keep that talent is a major boon for small companies.
GoCo removes paperwork from the onboarding process and keeps employee details in one handy place. It even includes a function that allows businesses to integrate with their existing payroll provider. Employees also benefit. They can use GoCo to pick their own benefits package and book time off from work. Handy, no?

A startup for startups, Get Worm is building an ecosystem specifically for startups and the people most important to their success – early adopters. An online platform, Get Worm keeps eager-beaver early adopters up to date with all the latest startups, providing the latter demographic with vital feedback and constructive criticism in the process.
Around 90% of all startups fail in their first year. Get Worm hopes to expose startup companies to the 400 million early adopters that exist, as well as hopefully encouraging a few more people to embrace the early adopter within them. Either way, signing your startup on to Get Worm won’t be the worst decision you make this year.
Iterate is a platform that brings the great rivals of our time – corporations and startups – together. Corporations that have been left hamstrung by the hurtling velocity of technical innovation use the platform to post their problems, before interested startups then start experimenting with their technology.
These problems are posted as “challenges”, which are recorded and pinned to a startup’s profile if they are successful in overcoming them. In time, this helps to build their profiles and attract more work and clients in the process.
