21 Product Hunt Tools for Productive Entrepreneurs

Do you know people who know all the popular tools to use? Are you the last one to hear about them?

Life on the Internet is pretty busy – there’s so much coming and going that you can easily get swarmed by the vast information available.

I love to know about up-and-coming software, apps, services or anything that can help with making my life as and entrepreneur easier.

The site ProductHunt.com lets users share and discover new products and it is driven by popularity through voting (similar style as Reddit).

Monitoring the website, I discovered great products that can improve my day-to-day life.

If you’re on the lookout for the best time savers and trending new tools, then these 21 Product Hunt tools will help.

Each are different in their concept, but united by their overall usefulness, they might make things easier for you in one way or another.

1. Startup Stash

This is one is invaluable to those of you who are looking forward to founding their own startup company. The Startup Stash is a curated directory of amazing resources and tools that can help you build your startup from scratch. From domain names to hosting or market research; to social tools, analytics or finding early beta testers – the “Stash” has it all. Use it!

3. Fit Men Cook

This website is pretty self-explanatory in its purpose, but has been an invaluable part of my routine.

4. GetFinal

Back to some more serious products, GetFinal is deemed the “credit card built for the 21st century”. Using it, you are assigned a unique credit card number to every merchant you use…or, if you prefer, a disposable, one-time use number for one-off purchases. Regardless, GetFinal throws old generation credit cards and eases the purchasing process a lot.

17. Density

I don’t know about you, but I’m not too fond of crowded places. Density resonates exceptionally well with me as a product, because it measures the foot traffic to (or from) your favorite local merchants, cafes or restaurants. You can check whether it’s too crowded for you to venture on the streets, and pick the right time to swing by your favorite place. A simple, yet efficient tool.

18. Flatbook

Flatbook grabbed me with its genuine concept: it eases the life of people who rent an apartment, but will be away for some reason. The service spares them the need to pay rent while being absent, as well as eliminating the hassle of dealing with subletters. You can trust Flatbook to take care of your place, including a $10.000 damage protection if you feel shaky about your decision. A very interesting approach to guaranteeing you happy and carefree holidays.

Remotive has some similarities with RemoteOK, as it also contains a well-kept database with remote job openings. However, the platform goes out on a weekly basis and includes frequent tips on productivity. In fact, “Remotive” comes from combining “Remote” and “Productive”, the owner clarifies.
