Welcome The Bootstrapped Founder Listeners!

We sponsored The Boostrapped Founder Podcast as a way to give back to our awesome little community of longevity-focused software entrepreneurs.

As bootstrapped independent software vendors ourselves, we're big fans of bootstrapping and growing a company slowly, organically, one challenge at the time. We put people before profits in our decision-making and we seek to make sure that our work is sustainable. 

Arvid’s sharing on how to face emotional challenges while growing a business resonates with our history and company values, and we believe it can be useful for all our founders friends.

A Promo Code Just for You

At Balsamiq, we make a tool that allows founders to pretend to be a UI designer until they can afford to hire one. :)

It's a low-fidelity wireframing tool. You can use it to get your ideas from your head to the screen, so you can better communicate with developers and customers.

Our SaaS version is called Balsamiq Cloud. If you want to check it out, here's a promo code that gives you a 90-day trial instead of a regular 30-days one. Just enter BOOTSTRAPPEDFOUNDER in your Cloud's Space Settings, and start wireframing! The code can be used up to 30 June 2022.

Say Hello!

Balsamiq is not metric-driven, but people-driven. We always like to meet new founders.

If you have any questions or comments about Balsamiq's sponsorship, or just want to say hi, feel free to email us at or tweet us at @balsamiq.

We also have an Office Hours program, where we give advice to founders who need it. Check it out!

By the way, we’re always looking for people to help us make Balsamiq better. If you're interested, take a look here: Balsamiq Research Program.
