Talk: Boot Strappers Anonymous – how the MD of Futurebooks bootstrapped two companies
August 30, 2012 by SGE
Making revenue in a free world can be daunting when you have to pay rent and salaries. For every rags to riches story we read here on SGE, 17 startups are doing it the old school way – with personal finance and company revenue. This session will look at startups bootstrapping across Asia and the US, and what is trending.
Bootstrapping a business is taking the untrodden path. The path with the most obstacles and unknowns. It requires unconventional thinking and a great deal of self direction. Managing Director of Futurebooks, Anthony Coundouris, shares his personal experience bootstrapping two companies, and why he declined early stage investment.
“20% of Futurebooks customers bootstrap. 85% of startups worldwide get cash from consulting.” – Futurebooks
