The Bootstrappers Breakfast has been meeting in Silicon Valley since 2003, and SKMurphy began holding the peer networking breakfasts in San Diego in late 2010. For a small fee, plus the cost of breakfast and a tip, the Bootstrappers Breakfast holds conversations about growing a business based on internal cash-flow. This is not for entrepreneurs who want to meet VCs. This meetup is intended to give startup founders a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with their peers. The other attendees will all be in early stage high-tech startups. More information about Bootstrappers Breakfast is here. Registration for the monthly San Diego meetup is online here.
