Bootstrapping a Startup to Scale: Ask Me Anything with Todd Garland

  • CIC Boston 50 Milk Street, Lighthouse West, 20th fl Boston, MA, 02110 United States (map)

We're excited to have Founder & CEO Todd Garland joining us to answer your questions about bootstrapping your startup.

Todd has spent the past ten years growing BuySellAds to one of the largest advertising marketplaces on the web. His startup now competes with industry giants, selling over 6 billion ad impressions each month. BSA now has 39 employees and millions of dollars in revenue. They've acquired other companies, most recently the reinvented & revitalized Digg.com.

And they've done all of this without ever raising outside capital. Todd started BSA while working at HubSpot, and built it to profitability and $800k in revenue in less than a year. If you're a founder that wants to build and scale a successful business without taking on debt or having obligations to investors, this is a great opportunity to learn from someone who's done it.

For this event, we'll choose several attendees in advance to join Todd on stage, one at a time, for a short discussion.

Unlike a traditional Q&A, you'll have time alotted to truly have a conversation with Todd, in front of an audience that can also learn from it. It's a great opportunity to get some high-quality advice, connect with a notable founder in Boston's startup community, and meet like-minded founders & peers.

RSVP now to attend, and select if you have something you'd like to ask Todd about. We'll be giving preference to questions that have room for discussion (more than a yes/no) and connect to something you're doing, planning, or deciding on (vs hypotheticals or only curiosity).

This event is part of the Founding Startups track at Startup Boston 2018.

Todd Garland, Founder & CEO at BuySellAds
