Start-up instagram feed

What if there were a start-up feed on instagram, and every week people shared their amazing or quotidien stories of the week through photos - great customer interactions, new launches, or even team events?

An instagram hashtag that people could use to share great start-up "wows" every week. It could be a low-effort way for start-ups to find each other and celebrate each other, as well as a way for the start-up-interested to learn about new companies. 

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

It will provide a moral boost and a sense of community

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

It could be as simple as setting up a hashtag, or maybe making a web start-up account that could collect the pictures. It could be done with instagram or pinterest.

How could we get started?

First step: setting up a hashtag. Prototyped already on instagram, with hashtag #startup_wow . Please give it a try!

I have a large backpack of knowledge on Instagram. I was starting my main account from the launch of this platform! I'd say that Instagram Stories to ensure that you always post quality content. Think about the kind of message you want to post, your target audience, and how you can communicate with them effectively.
