Come join entrepreneurs who eat problems for breakfast. At a Bootstrappers Breakfast we have serious conversations about growing a business based on internal cashflow & 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 & 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 & 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, & get feedback & 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, & business issues with peers. Now in our 13th year in Silicon Valley.
We meet in the back area, so space is limited - Please RSVP.
