Your thoughts and opinions
Far too broad a question to get a sensible response on a forum.
However, opening gambit
Bootstrapping is a great exercise when starting a business - and also a good pre-cursor to raising external funds.
Crowdfunding is time consuming and potentially expensive - in most cases you need to spend at least 9 months building your brand and your crowd to get any real momentum.
Of course, the real value will depend on the application and the outcome of the funds raised.
Can't abide words with 13 letters in them, so I'm going for crowdfunding.
WTF is bootstrapping
Bootstrap is a situation in which an entrepreneur starts a company with little capital. An individual is said to be bootstrapping when he or she attempts to found and build a company from personal finances or from the operating revenues of the new company.
To be fair, that's probably as scientific as most rationales for crowdfunding
I have bootstrapping for 30 years and never even knew it
I asked my mum for a fiver so I could buy some laces for my boots. Didn't really help.
"Bootstrapping versus Crowdfunding" - depends. Whats the context?
Isn't that the Star Trek thing?
Is it a random business-word generator?
It's a load of bullocks and I am fed up with reading this stuff
It always comes from people who have never run a business know nothing about running a business and make up words I have never heard of only to discover the made up word is what I already do !
It winds me right up
I see your 'Entrepreneurship', and raise you 'Disrupting the industry'.
Was hoping to see "blue sky thinking" - was not disappointed!
Ooh yes. Disrupting is bang on trend.
