Quote from Greg:
“Indie Worldwide is phenomenal…I've been able to find almost everything that I could need as a startup founder there, and some of my most active users that are constantly giving me feedback on what is good, what is great, what they love, and what sucks.
As a startup founder, I don't know that you could really ask for more than that.”

Founders’ Club Giveaway Winners ✨

Last month we announced a giveaway on Twitter to select a group of four founders to receive a free membership for Founders’ Club.
This round saw more than 3x as many nominations than the last time we ran a giveaway, which made it supremely difficult to choose just four.
I'm super excited about the batch of founders we chose and the things they are working on:
Andrew Hodson - @MyBuddyAndrew, Founder of Hauling Buddies
Andrea Brice - @DirtyDataGirl, Founder of Willowfinch
Olu Adedeji - @oluadedej, Founder of Prelo
Michael Yagudaev - @yagudaev, Founder of Emojination
Look out for them in the Slack :)

Coming Soon 🛣️

  • New season of the podcast & new formats
  • Strategy guides for running a better indie business.
  • Meetup in NYC (covid-permitting), reply to this email if you’re in New York City and you’d like to join us next month!
