2nd meetup with Mathilde Leo on bootstrapping Jam Conf ( from a side-project to a go-to community for Europe's most talented product makers.


Welcome to IndieHackers ( Barcelona - a community of bootstrappers, makers, entrepreneurs, and developers who are working together to build profitable online businesses 💻🏝✌️. We meet monthly to share experiences, help each other and learn through doing.


Join our 2nd meetup with an awesome guest visiting us from Lisbon - Mathilde Leo ( is a product manager turned indie founder. In 2015, she started JAM ( – a conference to share the stories behind great products. Little did she know this passion project would soon become her main source of income. Let alone her passport to quit her 9-9 job and work remotely doing what she loved. That’s what she did in 2017 when she left her full-time role in London to grow JAM into a thriving community of makers on a mission to build something great.

Today, Mathilde runs a series of alternative product conferences and retreats, focusing on uncovering ‘no-bullshit’ stories, helping speakers craft memorable talks and curating impactful offline experiences.

In her spare time, she loves to eat cheese and practice Muay Thai (rarely at the same time). She also writes for Forbes Women ( and loves mentoring others on their journey to fulfilling office-independent careers.


Additionally, we will have a couple of lightning talks & demos from our local indie hackers, where they share real stories and challenges behind bootstrapping their products, and us having an opportunity to provide hopefully valuable feedback in return.

## Christian Giordano (

Christian is a creative technologist who spent most of his career in London designing and developing engaging digital experiences for the biggest brands and tech companies. Since he moved to Spain, two years ago, he bootstrapped two apps which use a unique approach to create compelling videos for social media:
