Re: Starting bootstrapped IH founders: I’ll help you get your first customers/users (free)

Abdo Riani @abdoriani

@andreimc @milozo @Ryan217 @genfurukawa @AlexDaro @davethebrave @Alfred1000351 and many more. Enjoyed talking to you this week.

For those who are struggling to find a path to market (first paying customers/users) and we didn't get a chance to talk this week, I'd like to help you clarify the next steps through a 30-minute call next week.

If you’re interested in a quick call/guidance session, here’s my calendar, feel free to pick a time that works best for you. https://calendly.com/ariani/30min

Quick bio: Currently founder of StartupCircle.co where passionate founders get personalized guidance from successful entrepreneurs towards their short and long-term startup goals. Before Startup Circle, I was involved in the launch of numerous bootstrapped startup ventures through a startup development studio I started in college. I write all about validating ideas and taking products to market by doing things that don't scale in Forbes and Entrepreneur. Lastly, I have a PhD in business with a concentration in early-stage startups and funding.
