I’ve met a lot of business owners and entrepreneurs who knew absolutely nothing about business when they started. These are often my favourite kinds of entrepreneurs to meet. They have a hunger for knowledge and an itch in the world that they absolutely had to scratch.
In the past, building product meant sitting with your team (or alone) in a remote place that none of your customers would ever visit until the product was perfect. When the founders believed that perfection had been acquired they would release the product into the wild and wait for the money to roll in. Or not roll in.
In this first of a 6-part series entitled Bootstrapping your idea, serial entrepreneur, author and master-bootstrapper Nic Haralambous takes us through the process of starting something from scratch on a small budget.
