From busking Celtic Folk in Covent Garden, to running a fast-growing bootstrapped business, Bridget has had an eventful career and YouCanBookMe could almost be described as an ‘accidental startup’. The founders, Bridget and Keith, were on a mission to find the ‘sweet spot’ in scheduling that would allow their app to take off virally, and make money too. In 2012, Bridget started focusing her effort full time on building a business that would allow the product to grow sustainably and profitably. Their early call to grow without venture funding has had a significant impact on the business. Bridget discusses some of the implications of this decision as YouCanBookMe grows – the good and the bad – as well as some lessons has learned in recruiting a globally distributed team of people who all work remotely.
