If you are a software developer or a startup manager there are several tools that are great to improve your performance.

What I use is:

Macbook: Great computer, excellent battery life, noiseless fans... but really expensive :(
Sublime Text: The best text editor for developers. There also other free alternatives but this rocks.
Dropbox: Really useful to avoid losing files.
Photoshop/Illustrator: A must have for designers.
Slack: A good way to communicate with your team members in the office.
Google Docs: Free and collaborative spreadsheets and docs.
Github: It's a great way to facilitate collaboration in software development.
Dash: It's an easy way to access to the docs of many programming languages.

It's also important to follow design and business blogs to stay up to date.

Nice, solid list. However, A Macbook isn't a software, though. It's a physical device so it's more of a hardware.

Our team also uses Slack to communicate. It's much easier to navigate compared to Skype. We also use Hangouts occasionally to host team meetings.

Hardware is still a tool — and any computer that doesn't rely on any Windows OS is a HUGE plus! :D

I'm aware that it is, but the OP starts off his thread with a title that says "My software choices for a startup".

So, I took the liberty of pointing out that it's not, although it is a tool...just isn't a software.

Agree with everything written so far, but its also so dependent on what kind of startup you are/ what area of business you are working in.

What different content management systems does everyone have experience using? I've used Typo3 quite a bit in the past and I have to say I think its awful!
