We all value the innovation and impact of startups, which have brought us some exceptional products that have become integral parts of our daily lives. Notable examples include Slack, Airbnb, Facebook, and countless others. The list of influential startups could continue indefinitely.
However, our primary focus today isn't on the startup products themselves. In this post, we'll delve into ten outstanding startup websites and explore why we appreciate them so much. These websites are presented in no particular order; they are randomly listed.
Without any more delay, let's take a look at what we have in store for you!
If you're unfamiliar with Linktree, it's highly likely that you've encountered it while browsing Instagram at some point. Linktree is a software tool designed to help you create a structured list of links that you can share on your social media profiles, directing traffic to various sources. You can even convert your Linktree into a QR code to bridge the gap between offline and online engagement.
What stands out to us: The hero section of Linktree's website is truly exceptional! Take a moment to appreciate their user-friendly onboarding process, complete with a Call to Action (CTA) that allows you to input your future Linktree URL. How clever is that?
In addition to their effective CTA, Linktree has succeeded in crafting a website that is both clean and visually appealing, featuring animations that breathe life into the user experience. It's safe to say, Linktree has done an outstanding job!
Retool is a software company dedicated to accelerating the development of internal tools. Notably, their solution has found favor with companies like DoorDash, Ramp, and numerous others.
What we find appealing: Upon visiting their website, you'll encounter a delightful scrolling animation at the top. It's incredibly smooth and soothing; we couldn't help but scroll up and down repeatedly with a big smile on our faces! Furthermore, the initial dashboard demo effectively communicates the functionality of their product. Throughout the entire site, Retool maintains a clean and modern design while exuding a sense of trustworthiness. Kudos to Retool for providing such an enjoyable web experience!

What we find appealing: Firstly, let's take a moment to appreciate that beautiful shade of purple! It's a visual treat in itself, though our main focus here is on websites, not just color.
Make has effectively nailed an essential aspect of their website. Their content is exceptionally user-friendly, making it easy to navigate without feeling overwhelmed by information. There's always a clear, natural progression in guiding users on what to do next. Well done, Make, and thank you for both the user-friendly design and that captivating purple color!
Clubhouse is a social app that made its debut in March 2020. You might recall the buzz it generated when it was launched during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when such an app was highly sought after.
What stands out to us: Interestingly, this website doesn't boast an array of features or content. You might wonder why we, as a web studio, appreciate it. The answer is straightforward: it effectively accomplishes its primary goal. It encourages visitors to download their app, which is undoubtedly their primary objective.
Boom - Supersonic is a company with an ambitious mission: to bring supersonic speed to commercial flight. It's hard not to find that incredibly cool!
What captures our interest: Perhaps it's our own enthusiasm, but their website's content is genuinely captivating. It entices you to explore all the pages on their website, delving deeper into their mission and aspirations. We're hopeful that the team at Boom can make supersonic flight a reality for commercial use in the near future, and we can all experience the thrill of flying at such incredible speeds!
Promly is a social ecosystem designed to help you discover both people and your own voice. It combines connection, empowerment, opportunities, and support, all within a single platform.

They've incorporated a clear Call to Action (CTA) along with a cleverly utilized QR code to streamline the app download process. It's worth noting that this website is also built using Webflow. Kudos to Promly for a job well done!
Webflow is an absolutely fantastic tool that we rely on daily when creating websites for our clients. We can't emphasize enough just how excellent this software is.
What we find appealing: Honestly, there's very little not to like about this website. There are no irritations or shortcomings to speak of. The entire website is simply outstanding, and we strongly encourage you to explore it for yourself to experience the high-quality user experience it offers. Additionally, it's worth noting that Webflow recently underwent a rebranding, so even if you've visited their website before, it's well worth revisiting!
