Is Bootstrapping cool? Is it worth the fight?
How can I scale up while bootstrapping?
My competition is well funded and running lot of PR campaigns. What should I do?
How do I balance growth and profitability?
Bootstrappers have many such questions and it is time we bring all of bootstreappers together for an evening of-the-bootstrappers, for-the-bootstrappers and by-the-bootstrappers (i.e NextBigWhat)
What’s really happening at the networking evening?
We want bootstrappers to come together, meet each other and importantly share/learn from each other. As a community, bootstrappers have none and it’s time we bring a LOT of focus on the ones who don’t have the comfort of being cool (seriously, how many bootstrappers received any awards last year?).
The Format / Agenda ?
7:00 PM. Keynote by Pallav Nadhani of FusionCharts.
Pallav has been bootstrapping for manyyy years and he is truly an inspiration! He will share some of the key lessons learned / decisions taken while bootstrapping FusionCharts (and at the same time, building a global product).
He is an ‘accidental entrepreneur’, who started FusionCharts at the age of 17 as a way to make pocket money. Today, FusionCharts has over 27,000 customers and 750,000 users in 118 countries, including majority of Fortune 500 companies.
His bootstrapped mantra is to build products that people love, and ensure that you get paid well for doing what you love. When not doing either of these, Pallav loves his traveling, single malts (or beer) and food.
7:15 PM: Fireside conversation.
Speakers: Pallav Nadhani (FusionCharts), Ashish Sinha (NextBigWhat) and Ahimanikya (DocEngage). This is going to be an extreme interactive session wherein we will look at different aspects of bootstrapping – what worked / what didn’t / when to scale/go slow/what are the growth options / how do I handle competition’s PR machinery etc etc.
8:00 PM onwards: Beer + Conversations on bootstrapping
