It may seem contradictory for Bootstrappers to take funding, but that’s exactly what two investment funds are offering:
- TinySeed is pitched as an incubator and is co-founded by Rob Walling of MicroConf fame.
We help you move from nights and weekends to full-time focus, and through guidance, advice, and mentorship from founders who have been in your shoes. And we do this all without the headache of traditional fundraising, loss of control, or the pressure to build a unicorn.
We make seed stage investments in bootstrappers, indiehackers, makers and real businesses.
If you are starting to get traction but still not able to quit regular employment, these could be helpful.
In the early stages of my company, I would have definitely been interested in these.
