Before seeking any outside funding, you must bootstrap.
What does it mean? You may not find customers on day one, so you’ll have to be creative in order to grow your startup. Bootstrapping is about creating the best opportunities to build your product, your community, your team and your culture. Not having money forces you to use your imagination to solve problems. You will find hacks and tricks, but above all, you’ll make all sorts of mistakes and learn from them, for zero money spent.
