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.

Elena Krasnoperova offers a briefing on "Learning Hacks For Bootstrappers"

Elena Krasnoperova (https://www.linkedin.com/in/elenakrasnoperova), our featured attendee, will offer a briefing entitled "Learning Hacks for Bootstrappers," Elena will introduce the AAA learning framework: Acquire, Absorb, Apply - and then teach us the hacks for each of the 3 stages. Attendees will receive a cheat sheet of learning tools to take home.

As a bootstrapper, you may be a solo entrepreneur or part of a very small team. In either case, you may not have access to financial or human resources available at a VC-funded company. So you need to learn quickly and apply that knowledge immediately to your startup.

Elena Krasnoperova is a former executive at eBay, PayPal, Zong and oDesk, the founder of two bootstrapped companies in the "family tech" space: SimplyCircle (http://www.simplycircle.com/) and Calroo (http://www.calroo.com/), and a Limited Partner at 500 Startups. She is a lifelong learner of all things business and entrepreneurship. Elena holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford University (and, as she sometimes jokes, a Ph.D. in Entrepreneurship from the School of Hard Knocks).

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.
