A startup publication
BYVI is a place where tech founders share insights and practical takeaways to empower each other throughout the entrepreneurial journey. We believe that by sharing stories from real-life experiences, we can build better ventures together.
Hi, I’m Lidia!
I’M a co-founder at Decklinks
My goal is to make press coverage accessible to all startups.
I’m a tech founder by day, and a tech journalist by night.
I started BYVI a while back when I realized how hard it was to get any publicity for my first startup. Most of journalists like to cover fundraising rounds or successful acquisitions.
But let’s be real here, if you are a founder, you already have a wild story to share.
So I made myself a promise, to make press coverage accessible to all founders, regardless of the startup stage or funding round.
Because as tech leaders we all got a great story to share and learn something new from each other.
