Topic: Bootstrapping Technology and Great User Experience

In this series, Jacob will walk us through the process of building a company on a shoe-string budget. As CEO of Dude I Need A Truck, he will share the headaches and struggles we’ve experienced in launching a complex mobile app and building an interface that a 5 year old to a 70 year old can use. You’ll learn how you can you build a budget, fundraise and lead a team through the turbulence of entrepreneurship.

• How to find people (and get them onboard) for equity

• Fundraising through Friends & Family

• Bootstrapping technology under 80K

Bio: Jacob Reitzin, CEO, Co-Founder

This experienced retail business development dude put himself and his truck on Craigslist to earn some extra money. After a few hundred moves, he realized there has to be a better way to manage these moves than being a human mobile app. His ingenuity over the last few years, has put him in the drivers seat as founder of the micro-move industry. After realizing how big this category is going to become, he called his brother, which didn’t take too much convincing and the rest is history.
