Bootstrap is a constantly-evolving organism. It has been co-developed by various members who have started many initiatives and taken from Ideation/VoD/Growth. Members start initiatives for various reasons including using the community to develop their products, services, capabilities and reputation.
Many initiatives never get past certain stages; others become fully-fledged aspects of the bootstrap community.
Below are a list of initiatives that are in Ideation/VoD. If you would like to restart an initiative or create a new one, email bijoy.
