Update: Atomic Squirrel has merged with Phoenix DevOps into a new company called Gruntwork! Check out the Introducing Gruntwork blog post for more info!

For the last several months, I’ve been working on a new project: my own company. It’s called Atomic Squirrel and our goal is to help you launch your startup.

Launching a startup is a long, complicated, and confusing process. Most startups hire an experienced lawyer who they can call every time they have a legal question. Now you can hire an experienced startup team who you can call every time you have a product, technology, or team question. You can think of Atomic Squirrel as a “co-founder as a service.”

We have helped many companies with product design, marketing strategy, data-driven development, system architecture, infrastructure development, coding practices, production deployment, scalability, research, recruiting, training, and much more. So no matter what your startup is struggling with, we can fill in the gaps. The best way to find those gaps is to try out our Startup Checklist:

The Startup Checklist

160+ tasks required to launch a startup

This is a list of everything you need to do to launch a startup. After using it for years to successfully launch a variety of projects, we’re excited to share it with all of you. Every time you launch something new, consult this list to make sure you didn’t forget any important steps. Did you set up Google Analytics? Is your website showing up in search results? Are you tracking business expenses correctly? Did you set up social media accounts and a mailing list? Is your database backed up regularly?

We hope you find this list useful for launching your startup. The list doesn’t go into much detail on each task, so for a deeper look, check out the book Hello, Startup: A Programmer’s Guide to Building Products, Technologies, and Teams. If you need help with any of the items, or just need feedback and advice, you can submit your list to Atomic Squirrel, and we’ll set up a free 30 minute call to discuss your startup.
