How we save $3.4mm per year (and you can too)At Meow, we save $3,400,000 per year with a 6 step playbook. Steal it to extend your runway in 2023👇
At Meow, we save $3,400,000 per year with a 5 step playbook.
Steal it to extend your runway in 2023👇
1) Replit Bounties with Amjad
Your full-time engineers have 1 mission:
Make your core product better.
So we made a rule:
If we have a one-off task with no need for infrastructure access, hire a contractor for ~$500.
You kill context-switching and save money.
2) Cut Your Ops Team
Do you need a full-timer to handle salary, healthcare, and bill pay?
So what do we do?
You forward an email.
Bills get paid and tasks get done.
It's a dream.
3) Making Money on Meow
We have a secret weapon for runway extension:
4.6%* U.S. Treasury Bills.
We invest in 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month Treasury Bills.
This generates ~$1 million a year to extend our runway to weather the economic storm.
4) Go Serverless
We’re built on AWS Lambda.
Our infrastructure is automated.
No servers = No Site Reliability Engineers (SREs)
You cut server costs
You remove maintenance
You kill wasteful engineering spend
5) Don't Pay for an Office
We’re a remote first startup with an office.
But we pay $0.
Incubators and VC funds love giving startups free office space.
They want the chance to invest.
At Meow, we may look like other Series A startups.
But we ruthlessly cut costs.
We put our spare cash to work.
And we’re hyper focused on flexibility to weather the recession.
After reading, I hope you are too.

Rates are indicative, and trade execution can affect the actual yield to maturity of the T-Bills. Projected and/or hypothetical performance is intended to show only an expected range of possible investment outcomes based on historical average returns and standard deviation of each investment type contained in the investment mix recommended by Helium, but does not take into consideration the effect of taxes, changing risk profiles, or future investment decisions. Projected and/or hypothetical performance does not represent actual client accounts or actual trades and may not reflect the effect of material economic and market factors. Meow is not an investment adviser however we’ve partnered with Helium Advisors LLC (“Helium”), an SEC-registered investment adviser, to bring you certain investing features. All investment advisory services are provided by Helium. We are not affiliated with Helium however we receive compensation as a percentage of assets managed by Helium for promoting Helium’s investment advisory services. Our partnership with Helium gives us an incentive to refer you to Helium instead of another investment adviser that is not a partner of ours. This conflict of interest affects our ability to provide you with unbiased, objective information about the services of Helium. This could mean that the services of another investment adviser with whom we are not partnered may be more appropriate for you than those of Helium. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal, and there is no assurance that the investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Helium accounts are not bank guaranteed or FDIC insured.
