Rob Walling – The Trade-Offs Of Bootstrapping vs. Raising Funding

August 16, 2022

The typical startup narrative includes a garage, a brilliant idea, and boatloads of venture capital. But with the shrinking costs of starting up, bootstrapping is as viable as it’s ever been. Add to that the rise of “Indie Funding” – angels and smaller funds that are willing to invest in companies without the expectation of billion dollar exits – and founders and their teams have a lot of options to weigh as they grow their company. There are many trade-offs between these approaches, and there is no “best” path to travel. This talk explores the trade-offs that not just founders, but also management and employees should expect when they choose to work in a bootstrapped vs. a funded company.
