Evan Silver you may want to connect with Jennifer Silver. This is a core area of focus.

Sure. Bronwen Taylor had been doing this on an ongoing basis for one or two IT firms. Definitely these are hard roles to fill so I wish you the best of luck.

Hi Evan Silver I'm curious what you've got going on here and would like to know more.

I’ve been happy with the service I got from Zensurance. Was a very efficient process.

We can help at Walnut Insurance. Not something we do everyday but we have helped a few startups get commercial coverage since we had to navigate it ourselves so we are happy to help if you like - [email protected]

Kevin Lea from Fuze Insurance has always been my goto!

Folks are KASE are pretty quick and responsive. Zensurance is another option. We had put a list together before here: www.betterwithbenji.com/professional-services

Foxquilt is a good place to start… get.foxquilt.com/flexday

I like Chris Case at www.caseinsurance.ca - I find that he takes the time to really understand what coverage is actually needed.

Hey Everyone! I'm looking for help with my Facebook ad account which has been either disabled (3X) or in limp mode since I opened it a month ago. Facebook Business Support has been abysmal and my account has been "in review" for days without any movement despite assurances that these resolutions typically take a matter of hours.

Wondering if anyone knows anyone on the inside that can help?

Rule #1 of business: don't make it hard for people to give you their money.

I have had 4 client accounts all go through this in the last 2 months and when I've been able to escalate it internally (once) the answer has just been, "oops. A.I. error" and after overriding it manually the account got re-blocked again almost instantly. Facebook's Q3 2022 numbers are gonna look bad.

StartupNorth , I see that there is a lot of SaaS founders in the group. Please tell me If I am wrong about this idea

I run a Fund called thetribe.vc/ and we invest in a lot of SaaS.

I therefore talk to a lot of SaaS founders.

Here is the idea I had and why I thought it could work with SaaS startups

The app industry was changed around 2009- 2010 by a few Ad networks that allowed apps with similar concepts to place a small video trailer of another app inside their platform. (When you're playing a game and see another similar game that you can click on)

I thought about an ad network for SaaS where they can easily refer compatible products each other and earn $$..

What I found talking to founders was that direct ad placement for SaaS is not ideal because no one will want to ruin the experience for their users.

Instead, they were all in need of finding other SaaS they can bundle up with, integrate with, partner up with, and Cross-promote each other. OR simple things like Finding good Affiliates for their products.

Then decided to create [SaaS Friends](saasfriends.beehiiv.com/subscribe) - to allow cross-promotion between founders

I am thinking about pitching the story of SaaS Founders to other Saas Founders in this format.

This SaaS does X in the Y industry and their number one priority is Z. SaaS X would like to collaborate, integrate or Bundle up with XYZ type of SaaS. Here is Founder's info and I will proceed to make the intro myself.

(Not sure that's the right way to go about it - open to suggestions)

Last week, I talked to a founder who btw runs a great community for SaaS founders and told me this story this even reinforce my belief in collaboration

He told me about these 3 French SaaS founders were able to grow together by bundling their products. They were running tools complimentary to each other. An email finding tool, an email cleaning tool, an email marketing platform. By referring each other and bundling they were able to grow super fast and earn affiliate $$ while doing so. But the only reason they were able to connect is proximity.

The startup scene in France is small and they were all working at the same co-working space...

Well, in this remote environment, proximity can't be the only reason why SaaS founders can collaborate.

Again maybe it’s a great idea or a total flop

Yup, definitely a great thing. We’ve partnered with a few complimentary companies and they’ve mostly been discovered by just really knowing the space we operate in and who else operates in adjacent spaces and our own theorizing about who would be a good partner and going out and trying to find them.

Hello, we have a small business, incorporated with 2 shareholders. We are in the process of selling the business outright. Its a really small deal and the buyer's Accountant is drafting up paperwork to transfer over the business to his client. Has someone gone through this process and can explain what I should look out for or can direct me to a professional who can consult me on this? ... See MoreSee Less

You should get an MA accountant to look into the paperwork before you proceed. Everyone’s tax situation is different.

Talk to an accountant about the tax implications. Depending on your situation, you may want to sell shares vs assets so you can take advantage of the capital gains exemption. Then speak to a lawyer about the paperwork

Tax planning is super important no matter how small the deal…

Hey everyone!

I am in search of a co-packer for my dry chalk products here in BC (Vancouver area). These products are made from food safe ingredients, but can be packaged in non food-safe environments as it is not orally consumed.

Any leads would be helpful, especially for non food-safe packers as they may be a little less expensive.
