10 Startup Focused Slack Chats Worth Joining


The startup world is all about who you know. Networking with peers, industry leaders, mentors and investors is key when it comes to creating a supportive team for your company and moving your business forward.

Depending on your business and how you’re getting started, building a company from the ground up can also be isolating – especially if you’re bootstrapping or working with a small team.

Whether it’s connecting with like-mined individuals around the globe or finding your dream job, it’s important to network in a variety of ways. Enter Slack.

Slack is a collaborative business app that has blown up this past year, and for good reason.

The easy-to-use app allows teams to communicate through chat, private messages and file sharing while also allowing users to search their conversations, as well other apps they use like Dropbox, Google or Twitter.

The fact that Slack integrates with a variety of messaging forms and other services is what makes it so beneficial – with team members increasingly balancing a number of different tools and messaging preferences, Slack brings everyone together in one place.

The communication tool is also bringing workers together in another way through Slack Chats, a set of forums where anyone can join themed chats to chime in on different topics, many of which are geared toward entrepreneurs, developers and startups.
