Questions for everyone — We’re starting a new targeted approach toward founders for our product (both for feedback and sales) and I’m looking to learn about new channels to reach them. What are the best ways/channels to reach startup founders and entrepreneurs?

I think you can find a good set of founders and entrepreneurs on LinkedIn directly or in places like the Forums on Product Hunt.

Try to join start up communities, or find angel investors and look at their followers.

Besides all the obvious answers like LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. If you think about it, the best way to market to startup founders is to be where founders are: YC networking virtual events (they're hosting 3 every week), Accelerator and Incubator programs (like the Founder Institute or Cofounders lab), startup groups, startup events, dedicated forums, etc. This is the best way to reach them
