"I can confidently say, joining BIPF was one of the best choices Ive made this year. SO much value and insight, but above all, being surrounded by ambitious, resilient and uplifting founders. Highly recommend for those willing to take the next step!"
FOUNDER WITH AN EXIT
"After joining BIPF by the legend KP I’ve started taking major steps to building an engaged online community, and know I have the tools to succeed. One thing I loved about the fellowship was also the people I met, who shared my interests and struggles and have helped me progress! Highly recommended!"
"The Build in Public Fellowship has been a game-changer. I’ve always hesitated to share my work publicly, however, BIPF provided me with all the tools and environment to break me out of my shell and embark on the build in public journey with confidence. When I started BIPF, I had <5 tweets. After, I have over 1000 tweets and launched my first idea publicly! If you’re ready to start building in public, BIPF is the place to do it."
Our alumni and members are from world-class institutions and communities like:

You might be close to burning out after seeing minimal or no results to your business growth from your organic content effortsThis is all too common.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
hi, i'm kp 👋
I’m KP and I love helping founders and building communities to serve them.In 2018, I was a no body in the tech / startup world. I had 414 followers on Twitter and a dead-end corporate job in Atlanta. But as I got deeper into the no-code movement online, I fell in love with building in public which became the theme of my career ever since.Because of that I have been able to accomplish the following inflection points:
✅ Got hired to lead multiple paid communities and educational programs for founders at On Deck and Day One with over $1.5m in revenue across 5 cohorts and 500+ paid Fellows (customers)✅ Built a Twitter audience of 47,600+ and a world-class network of investors, VCs, founders, creators and more✅Built 2 SaaS platforms in public and grew them to profitability✅Built a profitable newsletter with over 7000 subscribers from top startups✅ Created a podcast with 77 episodes (and counting) with top tier guests like Gary Vee, Alexis Ohanian, Sahil Lavingia etc.✅ Shipped over 15 side-projects like Cuppa, LetterDrop, Nocode Hub, Do Things That Don't Scale and many more. (Got acquired 2x)✅ Helped over 90 startups launch on Product Hunt with several landing the top #1 spot (winning 2021's Best Community Member Award from Product Hunt)Tbh, my whole career has been built in public (see my full bio here) and I intend to do so for the next few decades.Finally, feel free to check out the below deep dive interview of me being featured on the "Indie Hackers" podcast. This episode captures my career arc and my "build in public" philosophy quite clearly:
