    Tyler's Bio (from his Reddit AmA)



    "6 Years ago I quit my full time job to start a business. We’ve bootstrapped it to over $50 million/year in revenue and just won Top 25 Fastest Growing in SC for 4th year in a row. AMA!"

    We are debt free, 185 employees (trying to hire another 20…), and I started it with less then $1000. We’ve just won Top 25 Fastest Growing Companies in South Carolina for the 4th year in a row, and we are still growing around 30% YoY. We also place on the Inc 5000 every year.

    We’ve done it the “hard” way — Boot strapping it. We are also going through a bunch of changes. We are figuring out what it means to be a software company, along with transition from the entrepreneur “shoot from the hip” to the professionally managed company that does strategic planning. Both are difficult.

    Daniel's bio (c/o The Genuinely Interested Podcast) 

    Daniel Vassallo used to work for Amazon. By every measuring standard, he should have been happy & content. He was successful, making a high salary, getting promotions, working with great coworkers - all while working for one of the biggest companies in the world. However, over time, Daniel's motivation to work there decreased, and after a lot of internal deliberations, he decided to quit his high 6 figure job at Amazon to pursue the unknown.

    He didn't want to live on someone else’s terms so he decided to take his independence into his own hands. What happened next was completely unexpected...

    Andrew's bio (from their AmA)

    Hi everyone,

    Andrew here from MicroAcquire! Startup acquisition marketplace!

    MicroAcquire helps startups find buyers. Simple as that. We’ll help you start conversations that lead to an acquisition in just 30 days – for free.

    When my company Bizness Apps was acquired in 2018 by a PE firm, it was a bittersweet moment. On the one hand, I’d successfully bootstrapped my company to $10m/ARR+ and a life-changing acquisition. On the other, I’d sold something that took years of blood, sweat, and tears to build. Do I have any regrets? Far from it.

    I'm here to answer questions about building your own business, bootstrapping startups, marketing, branding, sales, hiring, startup ideas, acquisitions, and anything else related to startups.

    Derrick's bio (from their AmA)

    Hey, I’m Derrick Reimer, a full-stack developer. I fell in love with the 37signals ethos back in 2009 and I’ve been bootstrapping ever since. I've built and sold StaticKit (acquired 2020), a toolkit of dynamic components for static sites, Codetree (acquired 2016), a way of managing development tasks across multiple repositories, and Drip (acquired 2016), a lightweight marketing automation tool that grew into a leading automation platform.

    A year after writing the first line of code for SavvyCal in March of 2020, it passed $10k MRR and we've been growing healthily ever since. SavvyCal is mostly bootstrapped as we took funding from TinySeed back in 2019, before SavvyCal was a thing. We're a lean team of 3, with a marketer and support specialist in addition to myself, possibly soon expanding.

    I also co-host the Art of Product podcast with Ben Orenstein (Tuple co-founder) where we've chronicled our journeys building products the last 4 years. It hasn't been all sunshine and roses, like when I spent a year building a Slack competitor and then shut it down.
