Bootstrapping your business is hard. That's why we're building a community with the singular goal to help and support you - with words AND actions! Great channels to promote yourself and your business, a vibrant and positive Discord to join other bootstrappers, exclusive offers from other bootstrapped businesses and more to come.
Please come join us on Discord for free and share what you're building.
And when you're ready for more, sign up for one of our subscriptions to show your support and get even more value from this exciting community.
But if all of that's just a bit too much, you can of course just follow us here, on Twitter and Mastodon or subscribe to our newsletter.
Every month, we hold a 1-hour roundtable - a live video call discussion where everyone can join. It's a place for us to discuss current challenges and share learnings in a more real-life setting.
Open to subscribers and non-subscribers, it's a great place to meet other entrepreneurs and make connections as well as learning a thing or two from the community and founders who have succeeded as well as those that haven't (yet).
The agenda each month is:
- Intro: new members, useful announcements/sponsor messages (10 mins max)
- Presentation on a relevant topic (20 mins) - by someone in the community (incl. 5 mins for Q&A)
- Fireside chat with 2 or 3 members of the community or a special guest about a different topic each month (15 mins)
- Breakout rooms or more Q&As (15 mins) - will depend on the number of attendees
$10 entry fee. (Free for subscribers)
As a subscriber you'll be personally invited to each roundtable in advance of the public event and you'll get free entry. Spaces will still be limited to first-come, first-serve, so don't miss out - make sure you sign up as soon as you can.
You'll have the opportunity to get more involved with Q&As by sending your questions in before the call and you'll even have a chance to submit your own presentations.
And if you can't make the live sessions, don't worry you'll get access to recordings of all the previous roundtables.
You'll also get access to some awesome discounts from folks across the bootstrapping community that you can use straight away!
Here's just a taste:
25% off all of the products by one of my favourite #buildinpublic creators, Arvid Kahl, aka The Bootstrapped Founder - so many valuable insights for founders
30% off all submissions to the beautiful site that is ctrlalt.cc (by @nerddoingsocial) - a great place to submit your product and find out what other great indie makers are building and using
15% off Josef Strzibny's Deployment from Scratch
And much more coming soon...
I want to build this into a truly rewarding community and to do that we need some goals! So here's what I'm aiming for and what rewards will come for you at each level:
🐣 DUCKLING: $5/month
