180 microfounders reached 1.3 million USD per month πŸ€‘

Yes, it’s possible for a solo developer to build a profitable microstartup to pay the bills and live life on their own terms.

In the beginning, it can feel impossible:

😩 Full-time job takes almost all of your energy
πŸ“­ No idea what to build
🐌 Probably takes a lot of time before making any money at all

But when you realize that it must be possible because so many others are doing it – like these 180 solo devs on MicroFounder who just reached collectively $1.3 MILLION per month – you start thinking that you can do it too.

And with this new perspective:

πŸ™‚ It’s good to have a full-time remote job (no money stress + freedom to work from anywhere)
πŸ’‘ You just start building something, anything! You’ll find the right idea.
⏱ First customers can be actually found quite quickly.

Everyone is unique, but still, it can be useful to see how other successful microfounders started their journeys: how did they find their idea, their first customers, and what advice would they give to their younger selves?
