Earnest Capital wants to help & spotlight makers working on cool stuff

Earnest Capital wants to help & spotlight makers working on cool stuff https://radar.earnestcapital.com/

Two things Tyler & I were brainstorming on (1) we want our output at
EarnestCapital.com to be more focused on makers and less on "us" (2) we needed a way for founders to get on our radar before they were ready to fully "apply"

We're hoping Radar enables us to make ourselves helpful to founders before they (and even if they don't want to) raise capital. We'll experiment based on requests from founders whether that's office hours, 1:1 makerpad.co -style help, or a mini podcast featuring projects

Radar is intentionally lightweight. There are lots of great full-featured way for makers to track/publish their progress like @IndieHackers, @wip, @GetMakerlog, @starter_story that we didn't want to duplicate. Just point us to the best place to follow along.

      We got a lot of applicants and I'm going through them. We may not be able to get back to everyone
