👔 Clerky

If you’re looking for legal help to get incorporated, Clerky will help file the proper legal paperwork for Delaware (standard for c-corps) in 5–10 min plus will cost WAY less than finding and hiring a lawyer ($407).


If your company will exist on the internet, you will likely need a Terms of Use doc and a Privacy Policy. iUbenda handles compliance and is super easy to set up.


If you’re sharing your pitch deck with someone, you can use DocSend to email protect it. The free service also allows you to set limits on how long someone has access to it and to review the amount of time people spend looking at each page (great instant feedback)!

💻 Mixmax

This free plug-in allows you to see when and how many times someone opens your email, as well as schedule, send based on the most probable time your recipient will actually see it.

🎨 Canva

A house favorite for all things graphic design, Canva just became your new favorite site for user-friendly content creation.

(BONUS!) 📝 HelloSign

If you need to get stuff signed, this site is the best way to do it and their premium version is the most affordable compared to other similar products out there, plus they have a very pleasant UI.
