Ramit Varma '96

WHAT: "Lessons from a Bootstrapped Entrepreneur" -- Bootstrapping a company is probably the riskiest way to go about starting a business – but ultimately the most rewarding. Managing and building a business as it moves from a cash flow focus to an equity generation focus is a long path and one with many potential missteps along the way. In this lecture, Revolution Prep co-founder Ramit Varma will provide his insights on what works – and just as importantly what doesn’t work – when building a business in this fashion.
