IndieConf 2019

The alternative startup conference for bootstrappers, self-funded companies, and profitability-focused founders.

Melbourne, Australia || Friday 28 June, 2019

With support from Stripe Australia

 

Inaugural 2019 event

What is IndieConf?

Indie Conference is an event designed to get back to the reason why we became founders in the first place: to create profitable companies serving a real purpose. #indieconfau isn’t another event dedicated to discussing VC, pitching tactics, unicorns, or the “growth-at-all-costs” Silicon Valley pathway. You’ll hear from under-the-radar founders who are building profitability-focused companies on their own terms – and for the long run.
