Our Startup Office series is back, this time with Oleg Podsechin of StartHQ showing off his workspace at the Startup Sauna co-working space in Espoo. We’ve covered StartHQ recently - the chrome plugin allows you to get access to the old “applications” tab that chrome used to highlight on the New Tab page, but through StartHQ you get access to many more features, like a directory of web apps, smart linking into specific parts of apps, and even allowing you to see what web apps your coworkers are using.
Here’s how Podsechin describes his office:
Have you ever been confused about what web apps to use for your project? Even someone like myself, who writes about web applications all day long, stares cluelessly into Google when faced a problem where there should be an obvious online solution. But Helsinki-based StartHQ is a new web app directory and browser home-page replacement that aides in finding the best app for you to get your job done, by categorizing apps, making them easier to search for, and making them easy to find again once you've signed up for them.
"This is a recurring problem, as I found while working for a number of startups and coaching at Startup Sauna," says Oleg Podsechin, behind StartHQ. "For example it took us a few weeks and multiple conference calls to identify the right web app to handle Startup Sauna warmup submissions."
