About this event

Derek Andersen is the co-founder of Startup Grind and of Bevy. in 2017, Startup Grind spun out our community events software to create what is now Bevy. Derek has bootstrapped Startup Grind for 10 years and just announced a Series C round for Bevy, bringing their valuation to $325 million.

Alongside one of his investors, Kobie Fuller of Upfront, hear how Derek’s done it -- what he’s learned both bootstrapping and funding and perhaps more importantly, what he would never do again.
