Show Notes

Community-building is all the rage today, but Bubble mastered it way before it was cool. 

Way back in 2012, Emmanuel and his co-founder chanced upon the no-code movement before they knew it was going to take the world by storm. However, building a no-code tool takes time and patience. For almost 5 years, they barely hired anyone and quietly worked on Bubble. In that time, they built a community of steadfast supporters.

On this episode, Emmanuel shared his hard-won lessons on community, as well as what's next after Bubble's $100m Series A. 

Have a listen to find out:

  1. When is community-building the right way to grow your user base
  2. How to do it well, and how to nurture your community champions
  3. Common pitfalls when it comes to community
  4. Bubble's next act after its recent $100m Series A
  5. What Emmanuel believes the future of the no-code movement is headed
