How to Bootstrap an Indie Hackers Meetup

Chloe Warnock @chloewarnock

Start! Getting started is key.

First, pick a meetup format that fits your personality. You want a sustainable meetup that's fun and easy for you to host over time, not something that feels like a chore.

Here are four easy ways to start a sustainable meetup:

  • Meet up for coffee. This is an easy, free way to do a co-working meetup.
  • Get dinner. This is an intimate way to connect with other founders without having to invite lots of people.
  • Get drinks at a bar. This is an easy way to bring people together without lots of planning.
  • Go for a jog. If your city has a vibrant health and wellness scene, organize a group run.

Start small to begin with. Most of our biggest meetups started small by bringing together two or three people, and grew from there.

Don't forget to post your meetup so we can help promote: https://www.indiehackers.com/meetups/new
