Mtn View Bootstrappers Breakfast: Growth
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. Now in our 13th year in Silicon Valley. Special Topic for September: Growth We are doing a short 15 minute 3x5 card workshop on growth. Depending upon where your startup is in it's evolution we will ask you to consider one of the four following questions: Just Getting Started: What are your goals for the business ? What are one or two critical numbers you will use to measure success? Picking a Niche: What are some specific criteria that determine who you will serve and who you will exclude? Scaling Up From a Niche (you can focus either on people or systems). + People Focus: What are key tasks or roles that the founders need to delegate? + Systems Focus: What process and procedures do you need in place to prepare to manage at double your current scale? Here is the handout we will provide to help frame the conversation Red Rock Coffee is at 201 Castro Street in Mountain View, just a couple of blocks from the Mountain View Caltrain Station! Purchase your drinks and food downstairs and join us on the second floor a serious conversation with other entrepreneurs.

Serious Conversation

Bootstrappers Breakfasts® roundtable meetings 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.
