Submit your Medium story to The Startup publication in two easy steps.

Step 1: Please fill out the form below

Step 2: Kindly read the submission guidelines below

Hey there,

Thank you for taking time to submit your story. Just a few things:

  • The Startup has grown into being one of Medium’s biggest publications, something I didn’t see coming. While I’m doing my best to get back to every submission, we do receive quite a lot of requests every day.
  • Let’s make a deal: If we don’t get back to you within 48 hours, please consider your story not accepted.
  • If it’s really REALLY urgent, please contact me using your preferred method at the bottom of this contact page. And if I can’t get back to you, please know that it’s not because I’m choosing to ignore you.
  • In case you don’t hear back, please don’t let this discourage you from submitting your future posts.
  • Please no clickbait pieces or cheap stock photography — feel free to give your story some love by picking a free nice picture from a site like Unsplash.
  • Also please make sure to enable the email notifications on your Medium settings (many stories can’t make it because the authors disable them).

Thank you in advance!
