Bootstrappers Breakfasts® are for founders of early stage technology startups. It is a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with peers. These breakfasts were designed for entrepreneurs to share ideas and leverage thoughts with other folks who are serious about growing their business.

Our focus is on issues for growing a business, not on VC fundraising. We promote the bootstrap business model.

(ONLINE) Midwest Bootstrappers Breakfast

Link visible for attendees

Bootstrappers Breakfast is currently virtual!

We are not charging attendees through the epidemic.

For first time attendees. The breakfast starts at 8:30 AM CST and ends at 10:00 AM. This breakfast is for early stage startup founders, or even white board companies that are interested in learning from those that have been there. It's a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with fellow entrepreneurs and bootstrappers.

We ask that everyone turn their camera on to make the meeting a little friendlier.

Our lightning round question: what do you enjoy about bootstrapping your startup? What "psychic income" do you gain from entrepreneurship?

Our Bootstrappers Breakfasts are moderated by Travis Johnson, bootstrapper and founder of foodjunky acquired by delivery.com.

Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur or just thinking about starting something, expect nice people, good advice, and great conversation.
