In Brief

Programmer Thomas Backlund takes the idea of lean startup to new extremes.

The early stages of a startup are normally the toughest – every penny counts a lot of entrepreneurs will do whatever they can to cut costs. A Swedish developer called Thomas Backlund has taken this idea further – by moving to the woods.

A few months ago, Thomas quit his job, left his apartment and moved into a Swedish forest where he has been living and coding ever since. This self-imposed exile is all in pursuit of getting his startup off the ground, and has involved challenges such as severe food poising and harsh weather.
