Back in March 2018, we kickstarted the Indie London Community with the first Indie London Meetup. Our vision was to provide a local space for indie makers who wish to connect, learn and share their experience of starting a business.

Today, Indie London is a diverse group of makers from all backgrounds with a common goal of building profitable projects.

Come and join us if you’re a solo founder, software engineer, designer, product manager or bootstrapper. Even if you’re just starting out, we’re a community all about sharing and growing as a group.

You can find more about our previous events on our website:
