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.

Once we get the BootKarma system up and running in 2009, attendees will be assessed 1 BK debited after the meeting. Attendees may opt to decline the BK request, and will be asked to provide a reason which is recorded in the system. Learn about the Bootstrap Karma System and the Bootstrap Community Manual#Community Roles

Anyone may attend a Bootstrap Meeting, however if you are in Ideation, please come representing yourself as a bootstrapper, NOT as a member of another organization.
