If you're ready to put in the hard work, we have solid information and resources that can help you get the job done.
Our mission is to help you launch and grow a SaaS side project to reach escape velocity and become self sustaining.
We do this through show and tells, bi-weekly webinars, live Slack mentoring, and a kick-ass community of like minded entrepreneurs.
We do this because we want you to succeed and because it feels good.
We haven't built multi-million dollar companies but we have built and grown successful side projects while holding down a day job. It's something we know how to do.
Justin bootstrapped & sold the social media dashboard Pluggio. He co-hosts TechZing, a well known tech startup podcast with over 300 episodes of interviews and discussions. He founded Nugget and is also CTO of a large educational technology company.
Brandon eats, breathes and sleeps growth hacking and business development. He is consultant to a number of startups, including Nugget, where he runs marketing and is community manager.
One of the hardest aspects about launching a side project is believing in yourself and having the confidence to do it.
We solve this problem by building a SaaS startup in-front of your eyes. You get to see, with full transparency, each decision made, each marketing campaign, and much more. This removes all the surprises and shows there is nothing superhuman required in order to get the job done.
This is a show and tell log that shows exactly what we do from picking the idea through to growing to $5k/mrr and beyond.
The biggest killer of side projects is... you. Or, more specifically, your ability to maintain momentum, keep pushing through hard stuff.
We solve this problem with our show and tell log along with our rapidly growing community that keeps you in the game.
If you get blocked, for any reason, you can reach out to the community or Justin & Brandon directly and brainstorm how to get past that issue.
We all like to listen to successful founders tell their story, it's very inspiring. However, in reality, it does little to teach us how to execute a side project.
For example, in an interview, a founder might say something like "I launched, and within 2 months I had 100 customers". Rarely do we get to hear the step-by-step details behind that growth.
At Nugget, we unpack these types of miracle functions in 3 ways:
With all of the above 3 methods we show you the specifics you need to know. Right down to the nitty-gritty details like: What software to use. What settings to use. Etc.
If you don't have a good idea for your new SaaS project... we got this.
We have over 337 extremely high quality SaaS business ideas you can browse and use as you see fit. We also email a new SaaS business idea to all members every day.
Each idea is pre-screened and has accompanying analysis such as market size, links to competition, ideas to find customers etc.
If you want to discover your own idea, we also have a number of resources to help you get started with that and sensibly qualify anything you come up with.
