Few days back, in the Hacker's News I found this interesting post : "Ask HN: Small product, single founder success stories?"

The comment section of that post, had lots and lots of inspiring single founder success stories. So I thought of compiling a list of all those success stories with a brief summary. I hope this helps those searching for something like this :)
