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
