Basecamp recently announced that it launched a new free version of its software for managing personal projects. The free version of Basecamp is called Basecamp Personal. Some of the features that Basecamp offers include tools to discuss, plan work, give status updates, share files, and ask questions.

Some of the entrepreneurs who have endorse Basecamp include Shopify CEO Tobias Lütke, Tina Lannin of 121 Captions, Dale Lavine of NASA, and Samantha Silberberg of Quartz, and Spencer Stevenson of 3M.

The Basecamp Business platform costs $99 per month flat. This option allows you to set up unlimited projects, unlimited users, and no per-user fees. And the free version supports up to 3 projects, 20 users, and 1GB of data.

“Since the beginning, Basecamp has been marketed as a project management and collaboration tool for small businesses (or small teams inside larger businesses). However, over the years we’ve also heard from thousands of people who use Basecamp outside of work. They’ve gone off-label and turned to Basecamp to help them manage all sorts of personal projects too,” said Basecamp co-founder and CEO Jason Fried in a blog post. “But one complaint we’ve heard is that Basecamp is priced for businesses, not for personal side projects. We felt it was finally time to do something about that.”
