Startups.co announced today that they have acquired Moncton’s Clarity.fm, the on demand business advice site launched by well-known Canadian entrepreneur Dan Martell.
Clarity.fm connects startup founders with over 50,000 well known experts such as Mark Cuban, Brad Feld, and Eric Ries who can be contacted directly by phone on a cost per minute basis.
Clarity will join business funding site Fundable.com along with Launchrock.com, Bizplan.com, and KillerStartups.com to form the new Startups.co launch platform.
Since its launch in 2012, over 17,000 entrepreneurs have used Clarity.fm, completing over 150,000 calls last year alone with experts helping to drive their business.
According to today’s announcement press release, Clarity.fm had “many corporate options on the table” and Startups.co was selected by founder Dan Martell as the ideal acquirer because their mission aligned beautifully with his.
According to Martell, “Clarity.fm has an incredible membership of passionate and dedicated experts and entrepreneurs. I believe that the best way to bring our advice to more people around the world is to tap into a larger community — and Startups.co provides just that.”
Startups.co Founder and CEO Wil Schroter commented, “The vision for Startups.co is to help startups get customers, press, funding and mentors to overcome critical obstacles in the launch of their company. Clarity.fm provides the most wellrespected platform for our startups to get critical advice they need from seasoned founders who have been there before.”
