  1. Add the Bootstrap Seal to your website.
  2. Sign up on Featured Bootstrap Members to be featured on the main Bootstrap Network site.
  3. Add a bootstrap logo to your Mikons set
  4. Use the Bootstrap Style Page for Bootstrap projects


This initiative is set up to create a strong brand for the organization. We want a symbol that the members and the outside world can identify us with. So far, the branding process involves:

  1. A Universal Logo for all the Bootstrap Network
  2. A seal that can be used on bootstrap products and services

Why is branding important?

  • It gives us a clear visual of who is part of this network
  • Motivates members to bond and connect with each other more
  • Gives hope and strength to bootstrappers that they are not alone
  • Selling Bootstrap paraphenelia generates revenue

What do we want to start with?

  • Printing stickers that bootstrappers can place at the door of their establishment like a BBB sticker, use as bumper stickers or for for their laptops for example.
  • Get discount tags that members can get discounts for shopping at bootstrappers businesses.
  • Print t-shirts
  • Get a website up that is user friendly and of course has logos on them.

When and where do we want to do this by?

  • This needs to be rolled out by March 12th at SXSW!


  • Bootstrappers are already participating in the festival.
  • It will gives the network great visibility at a venue where thousands of people are going to be there for three days.
  • We are already launching Bootstrap Karma and Bijoy/Kevin are doing a Bootstrap talk at the event.
