Microns - Grow your marketplace into community

Ilya Novohatskyi

Hey guys.
This week was fantastic except for electricity problems that covered all parts of Ukraine. Almost 40% of energy infrastructure suffered because of Russian attacks.
Today, you’ll learn more about Microns in my recent interview: how we started, the challenges we experienced, and how we solved them.
Those who took part in the survey will receive a pair of our stickers.
And last but not least, we’re looking for makers who write a newsletter. We’ll sponsor some of you.
P.S. This newsletter issue was written in the bunker (here’s a pic).

🤝 Interview about building Microns
A few weeks ago, I participated in an interview with Sam Hartmann. We talked about building, growing, and making revenue with your startup.
I covered challenges in building Microns and making it a friendly marketplace for bootstrapped founders and entrepreneurs.
