What are Indie Business communities?
This list of communities is for solo founders and independent bootstrapped 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.
