About the Indie Business Topic

This list of communities is for solo founders and independent businesses. Having no employees and no investors definitely has it's perks, but going down this road alone doesn't mean you need to make all decisions by yourself. Indie founders who have online communities of like-minded people to rely on for advice can greatly accelerate their growing business.

About Online Communities on Independent Platforms

These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
