Dublin, California (PRESS RELEASE – May 2, 2010) — East Bay Entrepreneurs gather at Bootstrappers Breakfast meetings (http://www.bootstrappersbreakfast.com) to compare notes and share business issues. Monthly breakfast meetings are at Athens Burger Restaurant (http://www.athensburger.com) in Dublin, CA beginning May 27, 2010, at 7:30 a.m.
“We are excited to add a new breakfast that supports the East Bay’s strong entrepreneur culture,” said Sean Murphy, founder of the Bootstrappers Breakfast group. “Gone are the days when the East Bay was just a bedroom community. It continues to create promising innovative startups especially in life sciences and clean/green technologies.”
“We were delighted when Pete Tormey of Action Patents (http://www.actionpatents.com) volunteered to moderate this new Bootstrappers Breakfast meeting in Dublin. Pete has co-founded two companies and has extensive experience in both engineering and marketing,” continued Murphy.
Since its inception in 2005, the entrepreneur group has grown to a national organization of startup founders who “eat problems for breakfast”â„¢. The breakfast meeting format allows each entrepreneur to make a brief introduction and to ask for suggestions for one or more challenges they currently have. This encourages attendees to consider new approaches offered from peers.
“Fabulous networking and learning opportunity! I walked away with 2 actionable ideas for increasing my visibility in the community. I’ll be back for more.” — San Diego attendee
“I found it helpful today to have to articulate the specific challenges I am facing in my business in front of a receptive and helpful group of other business people. I also met a couple of great contacts that I plan to keep in touch with.” — Silicon Valley attendee
“I found the people who joined the breakfast were all very smart, experienced and valuable. I will definitely join next time to meet more people.” — Silicon Valley attendee
One entrepreneur’s unusual response to a question about an exit strategy of business: “I am not concerned about an exit strategy. I am more concerned about building a successful business, and then opportunities open up.” — San Francisco attendee
