    Event description

    • Have a startup idea, but don't know where to start?
    • Working on something in your spare time and want to connect with others?
    • Been bootstrapping for a while and need some help figuring out where to go next? 

    Sit down and share your issues, problems, and asks with the GridAKL team and others in a similar position and we'll find a way forward together. Breakfast & Coffee will be provided by GridAKL.

    ☕ Bootstrapper's Breakfasts meetings are for founders of early-stage startups. It’s a light before-work event to meet similar minded people; share what you're working on to get some help; and build a peer support network for yourself so you don't feel like you're doing it all on your own.
