Launch: DealBot

We’ve launched a Slack bot that can collect and display non-binding soft commits. This bot directly supports our new deal sourcing strategy for all deals:

  1. Collect non-binding soft commits from our members totaling >$80k
  2. Approach founders for allocation.

See the How to use DealBot guide. I’ve also included a visualization of usage to date.

Membership (email list subscribers)

Date Subscribers Change from Previous
8/7/22 1249 -8
7/31/22 1257 -13
7/24/22 1270

The membership trend is concerning. I believe our new deal strategy and DealBot launch should help us return to growth.


No change from last week. See the OpenCollective page for more detail. I’m looking for a good solution to chart our OpenCollective contributions
