IndieDAO welcomes and onboards new members in small cohorts on an ongoing monthly basis. This means at the end of each month, the community team reviews all of the applications received that month. The team selects 6-8 people who can then choose to accept and join the IndieDAO as part of the onboarding cohort. While the process is not completely blind, the team does their best to protect the applicant's anonymity and seek to understand a person as best as possible irrespective of race, location, and gender. This application and cohort processes allow us to focus on finding the best, most passionate and driven Indies while remaining slow and intentional with our growth.
