Growth by Revenue From Bootstrap to A-Round

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our Speakers represent bootstrap success stories!
They will share why their bootstrap ventures succeeded where many have failed,
or get acquired before they could grow.
After each has gotten to growth on revenue, they have now raised capital.

Bootstrapping is often romantized for control with without meddling investors.
Reality is often that a bootstrapped venture is under-capitalized, struggling to compete for customers, partners, employees, and valuation .. not only competing against established businesses, but well-funded startups too.

Please submit questions for the Speakers to vitalintake@scenicvista.com
