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. Now in our 13th year in Silicon Valley.

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

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 eats downstairs and join us on the second floor a serious conversation with other entrepreneurs.

Special Topic: Fit Your Business Plan for Q1 2018 on a 3x5 Card

In addition to our regular roundtable there will be a 15 minute exercise to map out key goals and experiments for 2018 on a 3x5 card. We ask that you bring a pen: we will supply the 3x5 cards.

Putting your 60 day business plan on a 3x5 index card as a way of maintaining focus. Outline one key problem you are trying to solve, who your customer is, and what success looks like in 30 and 60 days.
