What: A discussion about what it takes to start, grow, and exit a bootstrapped business.

Let’s rock: Bjork Ostrom (Pinch of Yum, Food Blogger Pro, WP Tasty) will share his experience building a team and growing revenue.

Drop the mic: Kevin McArdle (SureSwift Capital) will talk about what a bootstrapped exit looks like, and how to position a successful bootstrapped business for the next step.
