Random Startup Generator – A Name, A Logo, A Blurb, All “Coming Soon”

Startups can be incredibly innovative, but sometimes the pitches can sound incredibly repetitive: “The Mint.com for X” or the “open source alternative for Y” or “Z, but viral.” Even more frustrating – when these good ideas just linger as “coming soon” pages for products that never seem to manifest.

That’s the impulse behind the Random Startup Generator, a gentle reminder from the folks at the blogging startup Fireplace who built the generator as a reminder that “execution is key.”

“Anyone can make a really awesome coming soon page (including a script), but we want more real companies with real products,” Fireplace says. Fireplace has made an awesome one here, and even though it’s a joke, I’d be curious to know if the Random Startup Generator generated sign-ups for its actual product.
