Sunnyvale-- Bootstrappers Breakfast

Come join entrepreneurs who eat problems for breakfast.  At a Bootstrappers Breakfast® we have serious conversations about growing a business based on internal cashflow and organic profit: this is for founders who are actively bootstrapping a startup.

The other attendees will all be in startups. It will be a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with peers.

We meet in the back room, so space is limited — Please RSVP.

For more information about the group visit

Cost is a small fee to offset the coordination cost, everyone pays for their own breakfast;

    An eclectic mix of issues this morning: forming an incubator--with attached 6,000 sq. ft. kitchen--for food startups, an app for negotiating and monitoring behavior contracts with teenagers (an updated version of the star board), informed speculation and a spectrum of opinion on the future and likely impact of the Smart Grid on home automation and personal privacy, using to reach "Mommy bloggers", using (in San Jose, San Carlos, or San Francisco) as a resource for hardware startups, negotiating a sponsorship for a special interest meetup that does not compromise the content, alternatives to glue gunning an iPad to your dashboard for an iCar, fostering open information about health care cost to enable comparison shopping, the value of a bookkeeper for a team of engineers, IoT conference recap, micro-UAV flight limits and privacy issues, and multiple Maker Faire recaps.

    One of the best Meetups I've ever been to! Nice to have real tech startup founders to chat with. Most entrepreneur Meetups are mostly people trying to sell us services and I can't find entrepreneurs who are doing something innovative.

    It took me a while to get my head around how this format works so I'll be more prepared next time.

    I mentioned that I'm into Internet platform models. Several founders at this meeting are also developing platforms but I'm not sure they understand their projects are in that space. Could be good for a future discussion. The conceptual framework for platforms is just coming together on
