As bootstrapped independent software vendors ourselves, we're big fans of bootstrapping and growing a company slowly, organically, one challenge at the time.
We sponsored the Boostrapped Podcast as a way to give back to our awesome little community of longevity-focused software entrepreneurs.
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 BOOTSTRAPPED in your Cloud's Space Settings, and start wireframing! The code can be used up to 31 Dec 2020.
Balsamiq is not metric-driven, but people-driven. We always like to meet new founders.
We also have an Office Hours program, where we give advice to founders who need it. Check it out!
All the availabel spots have been given away. :(
We will probably run a similar program for another podcast in the future, so subscribe to our newsletter to be notified!
