Co-Founder of Geocode.io
"The secret is out about the benefits of running a remote bootstrapped company, and as no-code tools proliferate, I predict we'll see more people get into this space. As with any emerging industry, there will be consolidation, on both the investor side and the company side. We'll see larger investors from outside the current community investing in bootstrapped companies, and founders who may have otherwise chosen more conventional prestige paths choosing to bootstrap. But my predictions are much more cynical than my hopes. I hope that the bootstrapped community continues to be a welcoming place, and in fact becomes an even more welcoming place. The corporate and mainstream tech worlds are still difficult for many people, and I hope that more people can find liberation in our small corner of the economy. That's the future I want to see, and that's what drives me to try to help others realize that they, too, can bootstrap a company."
