Mars Discovery District – part of the Ontario Network of Excellence – is offering a seminar on how to bootstrap your startup.
Bootstrapping is the act of building your business from your own funds and revenue from customers, instead of raising money from outsiders such as angels and venture capitalists. This is the method that most start-up companies use to build their ventures, and is my personal choice as I don’t like to give up control — especially to outsiders.
In this lecture, you can learn the pros and cons of bootstrapping, how to ensure your investment is protected and how to make smart decisions about where to invest money in your company.
