Taking advantage of existing communities

Community-led is an email course for founders who are building startups with community as it's driving engine. Throughout 8 weeks you'll receive 8 lessons + Notion template to implement the lesson and improve your community.  

Why it matters:

Let's be clear: your product will have a community weather you like it or not. There will be a subreddit talking about your startup, there will be a Stackoverflow tag talking about your API, etc.

Starting a community-led startup, doesn't mean redirecting and 'recruiting' all those people into your community, but effectively using all the feedback that already exists.

The questions we're striving to answer in this:

  • Are there online or offline communities that are talking about your target audience already?
  • What kind of business model those communities have (if any)?
  • What angle those communities are covering?

We will talk about concepts like: community medium and community model.


This step requires for you to have the following understanding about your startup:

  • How the ecosystem around your target market works, who are they key players in your target market.
