Bootstrapping - What it Takes To Get From Raw Idea to A Fundable Startup Company
This is a "How To" talk that lays out a roadmap for turning an idea into a company. It discusses the basics of preparing to jump, developing your team, getting market validation and developing a plan for the first year of your company when you are likely to be alone, or nearly so, and running on your own capital and "friends and family" money. What do you do to prepare to leave your job? How to you test the business proposition? How do you identify the outside skills you need and get people involved that have skills you do not have, but must rate these people's abilities anyway? This can be a 1 to 2 hour presentation, and is a module from the CEO Boot camp seminar.
