Introducing the Pioneer Codex
Shared by pioneer · 40d ago · 13 comments

Take a peek at the collection of resources we put together for founders, answering specific common questions from Idea to Seed!


We're also live on PH!

Codex has links that say "(video - restricted to Pioneers)" but they are to a Google Drive. How are we supposed to establish credentials for those?

Hey Andy! Those videos are watchable by folks who've been selected as Pioneers. Should we change up that language?

AndyDent-Touchgram · 39d ago

Being a "Pioneer" is kinda obvious now you point it out.

However, the Codex is very public, having gone live on Product Hunt, so at first glance I'd thought that those were resources for those of us in the Pioneer program even though not having yet made it as "Pioneers".

Ah I see, yep that makes sense. May workshop that. Ty!

Also had the same thoughts as Andy. Thought being part of programme gets you access to that/ thought was motivation/Perl for joining/ being I’m the programme?

Maybe you get to eat access if you’ve done 12 week streak?

I've been here a lot longer than 12 weeks - status is very binary - either a Pioneer or we're not. Being in the Top 100 (used to) get you a video call with some peers once a week.

This is awesome! Answers so many questions I’ve had for a long time! · 40d ago

This quote here will send you on a wild goose chase:

Do not commit to an idea full-time simply because you "find yourself thinking about it in the shower", seriously.

Yes, I agree you are correct in some capacity and your reaction is healthy/sensible. But, that statement is not meant for broader common population. This statement works best with the specific group of capable/responsible individuals. Of course if some lunatic executes this they would definitely be chasing the gooses over the wild. Things are not equal in nature, so we cannot reject this statement entirely. Tell me if something does not add up here. · 40d ago

So, yeah, engage the content as it was written.

Also, I am not sure how you could deduce that it was for a broader common population. Or that it's for a specific group of capable/responsible individuals.

There are people out there looking for answers and with this coming from an prime platform like Pioneer, be sure people will take the answer as it is.

If something is or for a specific crowd, let that thought be known.

JetBrains · 40d ago

Common sense should tell you that. And I don't speak for anybody here. And I don't have anything to add.

JetBrains · 40d ago

Awesomeness! Single window for success. Thanks for making it.

This is great. Finding this page particularly valuable:

Wasn't clear to me before the role and incentives of VCs. Kudos team!
