Minneapolis: Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 7:30 AM (register)

As suggested by the group, we will have a topic for Minneapolis’ next meeting discussion – Bootstrapping or Just Can’t Raise Money – Is there a Difference? Does it Really Matter? My hope is that through this discussion we will hit on several of the more specific topics / questions that members said they would like to discuss – What kind of companies should be bootstrapped? When is the right time to raise money? How much money and from whom should I raise it? Are there special legal issues or structures that I should know about if I decide to bootstrap?

Come ready to answer tough questions about your financing strategy and to learn from your peers.

I look forward to an engaging discussion.

I look forward to an engaging discussion. If you are not in Minneapolis or can not make the meeting we will send our notes out to the yahoo group. – Kevin Spreng
