Share Article

The Micropreneur Academy ( is an online training program for current and aspiring software entrepreneurs. Its goal is to take one-person software startups from zero to launch in four months. The Academy opened in April via a semi-private launch, but it's re-opening the doors for general enrollment on Tuesday, July 28. The creator, Rob Walling (, is a full-time Serial Micropreneur based in Fresno, California. Rob uses the term Serial Micropreneur to describe an entrepreneur who creates the lifestyle of his/her choice through a portfolio of one-person technology businesses (MicroISVs, SaaS websites, e-commerce sites, etc…).

There has never been a better time in history to be a person with technical skills and entrepreneurial drive.

Micropreneurship is about building and marketing niche software products and web applications.

A Micropreneur is a highly technical entrepreneur who values time, location and income independence; in other words, the ability to control when and where she works, and how much money she makes. Micropreneurs automate ruthlessly and use outsourcing extensively.

The goals of a Micropreneur are simple: retain the ability to write code, support themselves financially with no employees, and work when and where they like.

About The Academy

The Micropreneur Academy is a paid community of solo software entrepreneurs who've come to learn how to go from product idea to successful launch. They also support one another through the private forums and a members-only LinkedIn group.

The Academy follows a structured blueprint for finding a viable niche, building or buying a product, launching, marketing, and supporting it...all as a one-person software company.

In just over three months the Academy has hundreds of posts to the private forums, and a number of software products and web applications built by Academy members have either launched or will be launching in the next month.

Products such as social photo sharing app, online mind mapping tool ThoughtMuse, web based proposal software BidSketch, domain name idea engine HotNameList, foreclosure listing site flip-start, and several others...

As Rob says "There has never been a better time in history to be a person with technical skills and entrepreneurial drive."
