The Indiependent is an intentionally small community for indie founders who seek a friendly and supportive environment.
We hang out in Slack and have occasional virtual meetups.
What makes it different?
🤏 it's small, you're pretty much guaranteed a response to every message you post — and not just any response or fake positivity, we'll help you avoid those mistakes because we care and get to know you.
😬 60 days of inactivity will get you booted — yes, people react and are scared off with this, but also love it once they experience it. Also, it only takes one message to stay active. We believe you can do it! And we will also encourage you along the way.
🤝 it exists with the intention to stay active and create deeper connections — Rosie got tired of not being able to maintain and discover deeper online supportive friendships & network. Everything felt superficial.
🤗 our goal is not to be a big community — we are capping membership to 100 members.
🗺 we have members at a variety of levels of their indie journey — we're a mixture of freelancers/consultants, full-time / part-time employees and also full time indie founders.
💵 the fee is lifetime — subject to you staying active.
🔄 you can rejoin anytime and we will welcome you, but you must pay the fee again
💀 just over half of our members have survived — the first 12 months
What people say:
Indiependent is a cozy and authentic space for community-focused makers to gather. It is well organized and still small enough really get to know one another. Rosie is incredibly thoughtful with the space and I'm excited to see how the community grows! — Zeus Lalkaka
As a solopreneur, indie hacker & bootstrapper, the Indiependent community feels like my digital home. We share the same goals, values, and help each other reach the next level and stay sane. Rosie makes it even better by adding life, energy, structure, insights and rainbows to the mix. — Sébastien Dubois
