About Andy’s Newsletter

About once a week, I share a collection of links and resources on a range of issues of interest to startup CEOs and founders including fundraising, mental health, hiring, and more. On top of that, each week I include a section called “Network Asks,” where I include requests from CEO’s and founders for resources on things like compensation data, recruiter referrals, and more that I share the best responses to in the following week’s edition.

This email started as an email I’d bcc all my clients on each week, but after a while I figured it was silly to not make it something anyone could subscribe to.

About Me

I’m Andy Sparks, an executive coach to startup CEOs and founders.

Before I became a coach, I was the co-founder & CEO at Holloway, a digital book publishing company. While I was there, I published The Holloway Guide to Raising Venture Capital (digital, print), a 310 page book, published in 2019, written to help founders understand how early-stage fundraising works.

And before that, I was the co-founder & COO at Mattermark, a business analytics and data company. While there, I helped start The Mattermark Daily, which at peak had over 150,000 subscribers.

I live in Denver, love to cook, and am writing my first fantasy novel in my free time.

💸 How Much Does it Cost?

Right now, Andy’s Newsletter is 100% free. I might change that in the future, but right now this is just something I do for clients and figure I might as well help out more folks.
