Ideas come from real problems

How it started

In 2018, Startups from the Bottom started as a daily newsletter of ideas sent every weekday. But, it was more than just ideas, each email included a backstory, monetization strategy, deep dive and validation.

Like all good ideas, the pool of great ideas runs out. In July of 2019, it transitioned into a weekly digest, diving deeper into a single idea and host ideas on the website for readers to browse and search the archives.

Brian Thomas

Hi, I'm Brian! I've been in the startup space for over seven years and previously worked in the government sector for eight years as a software developer.

I created a LMS used to award 190M in contracts and listed on patent. I was the CTO at samcart leading up to our initial 1.2M launch and continued until platform reach 510M in revenue. I held the VP of product position at Hunt a Killer, leading up to our featured spot in FastCompany. I also freelance consult for multiple startups, here.

Why you should subscribe

I love the startup space and strive to make this more than just a list of "bathroom" thought ideas. These are actionable and real ideas that I believe can have real traction if executed correctly. Ideas are nearly worthless... execution is everything. I hope these idea blueprints are you first steps to greatness.
