About Our Community

Indie Hackers is a place where the founders of profitable businesses and side projects can share their stories transparently, and where entrepreneurs can come to read and learn from those examples.

It's also a community where individual "indie hackers" come together to share their experiences, give and receive feedback, and rely on each other for support.

Courtland Allen created Indie Hackers in August of 2016. In April of 2017 it was acquired by Stripe. This community is the official Tokyo chapter of Indie Hackers.

We also host HAQ (Hackers Answer Questions) in Japan where we invite successful entrepreneurs to do AMA with our Tokyo community.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs share the stories behind how they've started and grown profitable online businesses. Listen to our podcast and read the interviews with Indie Hackers to learn more.
