When is the right time to launch?
This week, as you’ll see below, we’re highlighting a number of early stage companies that are launching in various different stages of their startup journey. It’s always so exciting to see these early stage companies, only 6-12 months old, making significant strides 🚀
It got me thinking around launching and when is a good time to press the big red button? 🔴 And I thought this post by Valerie Krämer was a really great summary of the many launches (not just one) that a founder needs to go through before they truly “launch”.

Here is a note from Rory about trumpet, plans for launching beta and how you can get involved:
Hey London Startup Club Members, it’s great to be here!
At trumpet, we are doing away with some of the oldest but most commonly used tools in sales - the PDF and Powerpoint. 
Our mission is to transform the entire B2B sales cycle, from pitch to onboarding. We want to help salespeople save hours creating and personalising sales decks whilst also delivering an awesome experience for their buyers. 
It’s time to stand our from the crowd. With trumpet they can design personalised, trackable and collaborative sales pods in just a few clicks: Think microsites for salespeople. 
We’ve been building the platform for the last 6 months and will be releasing the beta towards the end of March. To get early access, people can sign up to our waitlist and refer their friends and colleagues to skip the queue. 
If you have any questions or would like to jump on a call, please reach out either via email ( or via LinkedIn.
Thanks for checking us out!
If you are a founder and are currently raising, hiring or launching and would like us to shine a spotlight on you then get in touch with the team at or drop us a DM on LinkedIn - we’ll be in touch to get the spotlight on you 🔎
