You got the job.

The interview was grueling but they’re super keen and can’t wait to see you in action. You’re a fresh face. A new voice. Just what they needed—so they said.

On your first day you make an innovative suggestion and… you’re met with blank stares.

A career in Big Tech has sucked the life out of them. Even simply *considering* your suggestion has left them exhausted.

“We can’t do that,” they state. They won’t explain themselves. Their eyes beg you to stop.

Please… please just stay in your lane.
Big Tech is no place for people like us. We can’t just be cogs in their machine. It stifles us.

So I made a new place.

An exclusive, members‐only club of innovators, makers and entrepreneurs just like you. Join us and network with like‐minded superstars; meet, learn, and grow.
There are no whiteboards beyond this point.

Fuck Big Tech, let’s build the future together.

† Bootstrap Club is not free. We believe people do not value things they didn’t earn and thus entry requires a one-time purchase of a non-fungible ticket.
Tickets are NFTs.

• There is an initial supply of 29
• Each morning the supply will be supplemented up to 5
• New tickets are listed for 24 hours at 150% the floor price
• Each morning unsold tickets will be relisted 10% reduced
The above rules maintain a price‐correcting market with built in scarcity. Thus your ticket has intrinsic value; as more people join and demand increases the value will increase accordingly.
Tickets are non-fungible, thus you are free to sell your ticket at any time at any price on any (NFT) marketplace. If you sell them on OpenSea they will be listed alongside ours. Thus Bootstrap Club Tickets are their own market.
