The Bootstrapper’s Collective


I’m thrilled to announce The Bootstrapper’s Collective alongside Austin Rief, the co-founder of Morning Brew.

We are looking for 50 bootstrapped entrepreneurs to join us. Together, we’ll focus on key challenges, growth tactics, and business models. 

The Internet is the best thing to ever happen to entrepreneurship. But we’ve faced many challenges starting our businesses. Through the Bootstrapper’s Collective, we’ll create a private place to share what we learn. 

In full transparency, here are our goals. We want to create a community for boot-strapped founders to share their best ideas. We’ll hand-pick a group of kind, generous, and ambitious founders. We‘ll come together to learn, explore, and grow our companies. 

We’ve lined up some surprise interviews and AMAs with marketers, operators and content creators. Participants will share key learnings, under-rated marketing tactics, and have an easy place to talk shop with other bootstrappers. All conversations will be raw and off-the-record.

If you think you’re a good fit, we’d like to hear from you. Apply for an invite here.
