And next up... our second virtual event for 2021! This time we're focusing on Bootstrapping - another hot topic for startups. Don't miss this Live Q&A and make sure you view the Podcast beforehand :-)
Bootstrapping is hard.
Many entrepreneurs start building their venture with very little money and no outside investment. Instead, they rely on sweat equity, customers, personal debt, or personal savings to provide initial capital. Bootstrapping is liberating when it focuses and builds commitment to a vision. But it can be limiting from a financial and resource perspective.
This second Podcast and Live Q&A in our Startup Funding Series explores the pros and cons of Bootstrapping - don't miss it! Join Startup Grind Brisbane Chapter Directors, Roop Bhadury and Anthony Davidson, as they discuss what it takes to succeed with Bootstrapping.
Roop is an experienced entrepreneur with 20 years in digital media, AdTech and MarTech. Anthony is a marketing expert and Industry Fellow at the University of Queensland Business School. Their current startup, Engag3d, successfully bootstrapped the first three years of operations.
