Video and slides are up at

If you are a technology entrepreneur who doesn’t fit the typical profile for a first-time VC investment, you can find it difficult to generate interest in a business still in the planning stage. However, if you persevere to solve a critical problem or create new possibilities for your customers, you need to start building your business with only limited financial resources.

Bootstrapping does not preclude seeking investment when your active business merits and requires it. But it starts by making a difference and building a real business as proof of your products’ need for and value.

Sean Murphy will address what you and your team need to do to bootstrap your business: find early customers and revenue using internal cash flow and organic profits. He will draw on his experiences with clients at SKMurphy, Inc. and insights he has gleaned from the more than 800 Bootstrapper Breakfasts he has attended since October of 2006. The Lean Culture meetup is famous for being very interactive, and this will be no exception: he welcomes your questions and insights if you can join us.
