Successfully Bootstrap Your Business

Join the NVTC Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee for a discussion on how to successfully bootstrap a technology company. Bootstrapping is one of the best ways to start a company while maintaining a 100 percent ownership stake. However, without outside funding, entrepreneurs need to make sure that they are spending wisely, learn to stretch every dollar and look for innovative ways to grow their businesses. Hear from a panel of entrepreneurs who have successfully bootstrapped their businesses and an expert on ways to handle intellectual property protection on a bootstrapping budget.
