Bootstrapping

I teach a class at NYU’s Stern School of Business every semester for my friend Dick Miller. The class is all about why you shouldn’t raise venture capital. I know that its a crazy idea. Why have a VC teach a class that educates the students on the issues with venture capital and how to grow a business without it? Because it gets their attention. It’s a great class and we always have so much fun with it.

Well, Jerry wrote a column for Inc this week on the same subject. And as usual, he does a great job with it. I’ll have to steal some lines from this one for my class.
