No Whiteboards Beyond This Point

Big‐tech see you as a cog in their machine. You’re a developer or a designer, a UX expert or a marketing guru, a product director or a… whatever; you’re assigned a title and you stay in your lane.

Something about this has always irked you. You’ve never just done one job, you’ve always done all of them.

There’s no place for you there. In fact, they actively don’t want you.
They know you’d rock the boat.

Introducing Bootstrap Club

We made a place for you. Join an exclusive, members‐only club of innovators who get you. Network with like‐minded superstars; meet, learn, and grow.

What You Get

Exclusive access to our private Discord full of like minded top-tier entrepeneurs, all experts (or budding experts) at programming, product, architecture, marketing, sales and innovation.

The general channel is noisy but oh what wonderful noise. Over time we will very carefully add new channels for more specific topics.

We also have an exclusive and unique perk, a private channel of the five people who joined at the same time as you. We believe five people is the right number of people to start something special. We believe you will prove it.

There is also an invite‐only channel for the cream of our community. We are unashamedly meritocratic.

Getting In

We’re a club for those with an eye on the horizon and thus reward early‐adopters; membership increases every time someone joins.

const yourfee = (prevfee * 1.02) + 1

It’s a one‐time fee. Once you’re in, you’re in forever.

Fuck big‐tech. Let’s build the future together.
