Idiotic article on startups on the BBC

This one:

You can’t start a business without gazillion dollars in VC funding, which you can only get in Silicon Valley! Ah, us poor Britishers. First Brexit, now this! :tired_face:

Is there like a bootstrappers association that counters bullshit like this? I know there are bootstrapped conferences, is there anything that counters the big VC propaganda?

I like the propaganda. It makes the masses chase unicorns and leaves a bunch of opportunities for us.


Bootstrapping a business without gazillion dollars in VC funding just isn’t as exciting for the media to report on.


Why do you care? Don’t you have more useful things to do than “counter” media not targeted at you?

(And as if they are going to listen; they wrote a piece, they got paid, out of mind)
