With ideas and competition coming at you from all sides, building a successful new business today is as difficult as it has always been. However, starting it is a heck of a lot cheaper! Cloud based computing resources are now so cheap, you can build a software based company from scratch without having to seek outside funding - in other words, you can bootstrap it. And you can do it a lot quicker, too.

To help you get a leg up on this time tested technique, we’ll explore what’s the cheapest (and quickest) way to get to get your boostrapped company up & running, which existing technologies can be leveraged, and what you can do to keep your burn rate in check.

Speaker Bios:

Duncan Logan, CEO, RocketSpace

Duncan Logan, CEO, RocketSpace and a Scotsman from St Andrews, started his professional career on the London Futures and Options Exchange as a derivatives trader. After leaving banking he began a successful career of company startups. In 1997 he founded CITYPRO International Ltd, a leading European CRM reseller which he sold in 2000 to ASAP Plc where Duncan went on to become Group Managing Director. In 2002 Duncan joined MessageLabs and was one of the early team members, helping to build the MessageLabs until it was successfully sold to Symantec in 2008.

Duncan moved to San Francisco to start another company, NationalBLS in the residential real estate market. NationalBLS was only successful in reminding Duncan that money goes quickly and startups can be tough,

lonely, thankless disasters. With this recent experience Duncan started RocketSpace, a technology accelerator focused on helping early stage companies succeed. In his spare time Duncan can be found renewing his frustration with golf.
