🚀 New video out: Community Validated - Identify business opportunities by leveraging online communities

Hey there 👋

A quick announcement before we get started 📢

I’m launching something new today - mastermind groups for indie hackers.

If you’re looking for focused support, accountability and feedback from like minded founders then you will find value.

I’m structuring these as groups of 4 so everyone can have their own “personal advisory board”.

Going paid means only the people who are serious about business will join. And everyone will have skin in the game.

If that’s something that interests you, then check out the launch offer here. (It’s only valid for the next 24 hours)

Groups meetings start in 1st week of July, so we need to set things up fast.

For more details, check out the launch tweet or reach out to me on Twitter.

Now let’s get started -


Community Validated

Your next business idea can emerge from a random subreddit comment.

But you won't be able to find it if you don't know how to look for it.

Community Validation is one of the most important skills for solopreneurs, bootstrappers and indie hackers.

And Matthias is an expert at it.

He runs the fantastic newsletter communityvalidated.co and the the phenomenal info product explodingcommunities.com

I had invited Matthias for an Indie MBA event, where a bunch of founders got together on a Zoom call and Matthias shared his process of researching online communities and finding trends and business ideas.

If you’re looking for new ideas, or if you want to figure out how to validate your idea, then you will enjoy this video.

This is the recording of our hour long discussion.

Do check it out -


The next Indie MBA event is around going from a consumer mindset to a creator mindset.

And it’s with none other than Alex Llull.

It's happening on June 30th, 3 PM GMT.

So if you want to join us on a Zoom call and be part of the discussion, then make sure you register here.


That's it from me this week.

Do let me know what you thought of the session with Matthias, it will help up both improve our game.
