Roam Freely In The Entrepreneur’s Zoo [COMIC]

By October 18, 2013

It’s a jungle out there.

This may be the only zoo most familiar to those in the startup world – let’s call it the Entrepreneur’s Zoo! Just coincidentally, many of the vendors, services and products, we (and other entrepreneurs) use in starting a business have “animal” names. We’ve leveraged many of them.  Here is a line up.  Maybe one of them can help you.

Web Development and Technology

HostGator – affordable web hosting solution

– Safari – easy-to-use browser iDevices OS X Mountain Lion – Comes standard on all Macs

– Grasshopper – affordable cloud-based phone and IVR solution


MailChimp – simple interface to send out your email campaigns and build a list.

MOO – on-demand business cards, stickers, and stationary to promote your business

SurveyMonkey – customizable forms to poll customers and analyze that data


– Shark Tank – TV show with ventures vying for funding

– Task Rabbit – reliable outsourcing of some of your daily tasks

– Red Bull – instant energy to keep you up those long nights

The #entrepreneurfail part of this is that aspiring entrepreneurs may want to just use a service or a vendor without assessing business needs and ROI and end up wasting time and resources.  Make sure you do your due diligence and choose only vendors that will grow your business.
