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.

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:

1. Just Getting Started: What are your goals for the business ? What are one or two critical numbers you will use to measure success?

2. Picking a Niche: What are some specific criteria that determine who you will serve and who you will exclude?

3. Scaling Up From a Niche, People Focus: What are key tasks or roles that the founders need to delegate?

4. Scaling Up From a Niche, Systems Focus: What process and procedures do you need in place to prepare to manage at double your current scale?

You will have a chance to hear other attendees answers, compare notes, and get feedback and perspectives on your answers.

Here is the handout we will provide to help frame the conversation

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.

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