How to use ChatGTP in your startup

Many of us have seen the light in terms of how to use ChatGPT. I have done some research on how others use the tool, and I will also provide some examples of how I use it myself. I hope this can be an inspiration on how to use ChatGPT in your startup to have a more efficient day. There are also great opportunities here to create new business opportunities and disruptive solutions.

At the end of the article, there are some tips on how to get started, including registration and tips on other resources and tools that are available. What are your best tips?

Use in meetings

I am engaged as an advisor for a foundation based in Los Angeles that works with patents. In our last meeting, we used ChatGPT to create a list of Open AI platforms. We also asked a creative question about the use of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). We got suitable answers, which provided a basis for an excellent discussion.

Instead of the old “check it out and we’ll take it up at the next meeting,” we could clarify this in 2 minutes.

Here are some other examples:

Notes: You can use ChatGPT to take notes from the meeting automatically while you are talking. This can save you time and ensure that you don’t forget important points.

Questions and answers: You can use ChatGPT to answer questions that come up in the meeting, so you can stay focused on the discussion.

References and examples: You can use ChatGPT to find relevant references and examples that can help strengthen your arguments during the meeting.

Summary: After the meeting, you can use ChatGPT to create a summary of what we discussed and the important decisions that were made.

Translation: If the meeting is to be held in multiple languages, ChatGPT can help you translate what is being said into the desired language.

Content creation

Joshua Wöhle, co-founder and CEO of edtech company Mindstone and former co-founder and CTO of SuperAwesome, uses generative AI for a range of uses in his startup day-to-day. This includes a social media assistant he built with the help of ChatGPT and image generators DALL-E and Stable Diffusion.

Wöhle’s Excel app allows him to enter the text for a tweet in a single spreadsheet, which then creates graphics for use on social media. This includes a headline for the tweet, placed over an image that is automatically generated based on the text he writes.

“It just means that the time to go from an idea to something you can publish is now a minute or less, instead of it taking around 20 minutes,” says Wöhle.

He also uses ChatGPT in multiple ways to help him generate content for his startup. This includes feeding the system with examples of previous essays he has written and asking it to suggest ideas for new posts. He also uses ChatGPT to come up with suggestions for questions for guests on his podcast.

However, even though Wöhle says that generative AI has strengthened his ability to create high-quality content, he still plans to hire a head of product marketing at Mindstone, but with different expectations.

– I will still want an expert there, but my expectations for that person have skyrocketed. I expect them to do more work at the same time.

Integration with Google Search

ChatGPT for Google allows you to integrate ChatGPT into Google Chrome and get search results directly in the browser. This enhances the value of the search results. Keep in mind that the data used as the basis for answers is about two years old.


  • Access ChatGPT directly from the pop-up
  • Markdown rendering
  • Code highlights
  • Dark theme
  • Feedback to improve ChatGPT
  • Copy to clipboard
  • Taking notes and creating summaries of videos

Glasp is a tool for taking notes and adding markings from websites. You can find and save articles from friends. I use it mostly to transcribe and create summaries of videos. Supports all the most popular browsers.


Peter Nixey is the founder of the task management app Intentional. As a solo founder, Nixey is currently building the entire technology stack himself. Peter uses ChatGPT every day as a personal web development assistant.

He describes in an article on Sifted how it has given him the ability to speed up work with the development tool, Docker. He hadn’t used it before, and uses ChatGPT to ask for details about the tool.

“It’s been very good at explaining what I should do. It’s been very good at giving me code examples. ChatGPT explains distinct lines of code and why they’re there, and does it efficiently,” he says.

He says it would normally have taken him about two weeks to learn how to use the tool. With ChatGPT it took two days.

Who will own ChatGPT in the future?

According to The New York Times, Microsoft is in talks with OpenAI about an investment of up to $10 billion. They have previously invested $3 billion, and have a “right of first refusal” in the agreement.

I consider it likely that they will invest more.

Satya’s (Microsoft CEO) expectation is that we will push the boundaries of AI, and we will do this for all of our products.

Other ways to use AI in your business

There are many ways to use artificial intelligence (AI) in a startup. Here are some other examples:

Prediction models: AI models can predict future trends and outcomes, such as in economics, customer behavior, and sales.

Automation: AI technology can automate repetitive tasks, such as responding to customer questions, following up on leads, or handling administration.

Analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data, such as to identify patterns or to uncover new opportunities.

Image and sound recognition: AI tools can recognize objects or sounds, such as to sort images or to recognize voices.

Quantitative analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data and generate reports that can help you make better decisions.

Development of new products: AI can develop new products or services that are more efficient or better suited to customers.

Join the conversation
How are you using ChatGPT or other AI tools today and what plans do you have for the future?


ChatGPT is available via a website, so there is no need to download anything. OpenAI has not yet released an official app, although the app stores are full of fake versions. You should install and use these with caution, as they are not official ChatGPT apps.

Supposedly, you can download ChatGPT locally through GitHub, but I haven’t tried that yet.

Good luck with implementing ChatGTP into your workday and life!

Short about ChatGTP

ChatGPT is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) model developed by OpenAI. It is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) model. The specialization is to generate human-like text for conversational AI.

They trained ChatGPT on a large amount of conversations and dialogues. This gives it the ability to understand context and perform a range of tasks such as answering questions, generating responses, and writing text that resembles human-written text.

They used ChatGPT in a variety of applications, such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and automated text generation.

This Week in Startup with Jason Calacanis and Becki DeGraw – Negotiating a Term Sheet

Estonian IT is much more than governmental e-services

Last week over 1000 foreign guests and I arrived in Tallinn for the Estonian ICT Week (27 May -3 June) including the “Industry 4.0 in Practice” conference and the “Green IT” seminar. I will write several blog post from my experience, but as a first taste, I will share a video with some of my pictures from the “Green IT” seminar and beautiful Tallinn.

ICT sector has been one of the most important industries in Estonia, starting with governmental e-services and ending with Estonian startups that are proved to have a global mindset.

Estonia is a tech advanced and agile society that gets things done fast. Therefore, a big effect is expected by encouraging the industrial and ICT sector to work together locally and internationally.

Recently, Malwarebytes, an internet security company founded in the US enlarged their office in Tallinn, because of the excellent location and awesome IT vibe. People from different corners of the world are traveling to work in Tallinn, and they expect to have 60 people in the office very soon.

If you want more information about moving your company to the heart of Europe or investing, you should contact Estonian Investment Agency (EIA), a part of Enterprise Estonia, is a government agency promoting foreign investments in Estonia and assisting international companies in finding business opportunities in Estonia.

Are Norwegians fat, lazy and beautiful?

This talk I gave at a local TEDx event, in Bergen produced independently of the TED Conferences. I am talking about the present and future of entrepreneurship in Norway and try to examine the challenges of Norwegian startup companies on the entrepreneurial scene. Why is it so hard for startups to survive and grow is such a rich and prosperous Scandinavian country?

I am working on refining this lecture and on a book focusing on challenges Norway have ahead, so all feedback and comments are of high value for me.

260 Events In 202 Cities; Startups Raised $30M+

A post by Robin Wauters at TechCrunch

Startup Weekend, whose mission is to kickstart and foster startup communities worldwide through events and networking sessions, had a very lively 2011.

According to internal statistics shared exclusively with TechCrunch, the organization held a total of 260 events in 202 cities, in 67 countries (you can find the obligatory accompanying infographic below).

All in all, the ‘startup weekends’ attracted some 21,316 people, who collectively formed 2,817 teams.

Startups that were incubated at its events raised at least $30 million in outside funding in the course of last year, although Startup Weekend CMO Joey Pomerenke tells me there were probably more fundraising rounds completed that they simply don’t know about yet. Read more…

Software Ideas Cannot Be Copyrighted, Says EU Court Adviser

As posted by Eddie Ringle at LOCKERGNOME.

An EU court adviser said on Tuesday that copyright protection cannot be claimed on software functions. The implications of this statement are huge, especially considering the fierce parent wars currently consuming the mobile world. Reuters reports:

The non-binding opinion by Yves Bot, an advocate-general at the Luxembourg-based EU Court of Justice (ECJ), is in line with a verdict reached by the High Court of England and Wales in July last year. ECJ judges will rule on the case next year. SAS Institute took legal action against World Programing Ltd (WPL) in 2009, saying the British software company had infringed its copyrights by copying its programs and manuals — even though WPL had designed its products without access to SAS’s source code.

In my personal opinion, the decision this adviser made should be heavily considered by not just EU judges, but US judges as well. Why is that, you ask? Companies like Apple are patenting things left and right without having really invented anything. I can see someone patenting a new physical mechanism on a device, but to patent software ideas is just silly, as they’re usually obvious aspects of a software program. In addition, software patents essentially disrupt the innovation that keeps software from evolving into its next useful iteration.

Preline Fish Farming – industry revolution?

This company has signed a contract with Lerøy Vest to build a “Extended Smolt Farm”. The Preline Fish Farming patented technology solves all the known problems in this industry and promise no lice, reduced feed cost, higher growth rate, more muscle, reduced fat rate, reduced mortality and increased capital turnover. We think they can be a game changer in an industry with high growth potential if the environmental issues are solved.

Lerøy Seafood Group is the leading exporter of seafood from Norway. The Group’s core activities are distribution, sale and marketing of seafood, processing of seafood, production of salmon, trout and other species, as well as product development. Operating revenues in 2010 was 1,5 billion USD.

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.

Choosing A Minimally Viable Co-Founder

If you’re starting a company, one of the most important decisions you’ll make early on is the selection of a co-founder. Some might advocate just “going it alone” because finding a great co-founder is hard and fraught with risk. It is hard and it is fraught with risk. But going it alone is harder — and riskier. Startups are very challenging and having someone to share the ups and downs with, to be a great sounding board for ideas and to just help get things done is immensely valuable.
One additional thought: I’m an introvert. I don’t enjoy being around people very much. If you’re like me, the notion of just doing something all by your lonesome might seem appealing. And, it is — but I think it’s a mistake. Even for introverts, having someone on your side is useful and fun.
