10 Valentine’s Day Tweets for Startup Lovers

Posted February 14, 2013

Every year we come to Valentine's Day, and our thoughts turn to the special people in our lives. But for those of us who are busy building a business, there may be the tendency to spend more time romanticizing our startup's future than our love lives. So to bridge the gap, I'm offering the following ten tweets, all of which evoke the simple hashtag: #StartupValentine. Because we all know that whether we're single, dating, married, or "it's complicated," we are all lucky (crazy?) enough to have another true love. And what better day to celebrate that love than Valentine's Day? So here's my gift to you: ten startup tweets, one for every type of Valentine. 1) For the observant... Valentine's Day and Startups have many things in common… angels, heart, and being steeped in red, just to name a few. #StartupValentine 2) For the realist... This year, my Valentine is my startup. We're going to spend the whole day together. #StartupValentine 3) For the optimist... My startup fills me with purpose, passion, and desire. We don't have much money. But we've got big dreams together. #StartupValentine 4) For those who are pining... Because VC doesn't just stand for Valentine's Candy, won't you please invest in my love? #StartupValentine 5) For the hopeless romantics... Roses are red, violets are blue. I'm a starter, and you should be too! #StartupValentine 6 and 7) For the flirtatious... Because ladies love a "bootstrapping" young lad. #StartupValentine Because men admire a woman who has the power to hire. #StartupValentine 8) For the wise ones... Starting a business is like starting a relationship. If you want to make it last, it takes commitment, love, and honesty. #StartupValentine 9) For the bitter ones... Shall I compare thee to a cushy job? Thou art more lonely and more temperamental. #StartupValentine 10) And of course, we can't forget the classics... Money can't buy me love, so I gave it all to my startup. #StartupValentine (BONUS)  11) For those who like to be surprised… You make me want to go all night long, wake up in the morning, and do it all over again. #StartupValentine So there you have it.
