About this event

Not only did the unforgettable Matthew Lesko figure out how to bootstrap a company, he essentially figured out how to bootstrap life!  Over the years he has taught millions of others to do the same through his famed books and infomercials.  These days, he's busy helping entrepreneurs around the world create more success. And, he's taking questions. Armed with a MBA in computerized management information systems (paid for thanks to government money because of his service as a Naval Officer in the Vietnam War), Lesko became a professor in computer science and started a career as an entrepreneur. His first two businesses failed - one of which was a software company. His next company was a successful consulting business that helped Fortune 500 companies tap government programs to finance mergers and acquisitions and enter new markets. In a few short years, this business grew from Matthew + a phone and a desk in a one-room apartment to 30 researchers in downtown Washington, DC. Matthew then left the corporate world to educate the average consumer how they, too, could use government programs to help their lives. He has written over 100 books on the subject of free money. Two became New York Times Bestsellers. He was also a columnist for the New York Times Syndicate and Good Housekeeping magazine. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows and made regular appearances on Letterman, Larry King, Leno, CNN, Fox, The Today Show, Good Morning America and Oprah. His crazy TV infomercials were among the most popular in the industry and he is often recognized on the street because Lesko always wears Question Mark Suits.
