Let me tell you a story. Long ago Joel Spolsky started a little forum called The Business of Software. It was a great place where people just getting into the software business could ask questions, share ideas, and meet like-minded individuals. In fact, Andrey and I met on those forums and have stayed in touch ever since as our software busineses have grown and evolved.
In 2013 we started the Bootstrapped.fm podcast as a place to share what we’ve learned, voice our frustrations (Andrey seems to do this a lot), and once again try and connect with other bootstrapped startups. The podcast has grown faster than imagined and when approached by Mike Jones (and seconded by Rachel Andrew) to start a forum for bootstrappers we saw it as an opportunity to attempt to recreate the magic which was the original Business of Software forums; a place to swap stories and learn the latest techniques to help our businesses prosper.
We hope you find this forum useful and informative through your own journey as a software Bootstrapper. Let’s get started!
