Product Hunt Daily Digest
March 8th, 2018

You don't need VCs! 💰
37 Bootstrapped Products
So much attention is focused on fundraising milestones and unicorn anointment. Funding is just a means to an end: many founders forgo venture funding, building their business with their savings or cashflow.

We recently asked the Product Hunt community:

"What are some of your favorite products built by bootstrappers?"

Responses include:

✈️ Nomad List, made by Pieter Levels to help digital nomads discover the best place to live and work. “I use NomadList all the time and [Golden Kitty winner, Pieter Levels is] always improving it.” – Joseph Pack

🖥 Carrd, made by a Nashville-based maker, is a dead simple tool for creating a single page website. “This is the quickest, simple website builder.” – Angad Singi

Todist, made by a fully distributed team to help people manage their tasks productively. They're also working on a team chat app to compete with the heavily VC-funded Slack and Google's new Hangouts Chat.

🏕 Basecamp, also made by a distributed team founded in 1999 (!!!), is a widely used team productivity tool to compete with Atlassian-owned Trello.

🚨 Hyperping, made by solo maker Leo Baecker, will let you know when your site is down (it's ok, it happens to the best of us).
