    Nice list. Some of these sites (i.e. Squidoo, Killerstartups) get great traffic. The others all seem to be ‘startups’ themselves with very few readers. I’ve used many times and they seem to be the best but I’ve also learned that is also accepting free startup submissions.

  • StartUpLift

    I would also encourage your readers to check out StartUpLift ( where you are able to get your startup featured (for free) and receive feedback.

    Thanks for this list of great resources! Even if the site has only a few readers, it’s at least some visibility for your startup that you wouldn’t have had before. There are so many great unknown companies out there that just need their 15 minutes of fame to make them a household name. I also recommend checking out as another resource for spreading the word about your startup.
