Getting to 1 Million Dollars in Revenue

How can you hack the system and build a real business that makes money without giving up too much of your company to investors?
Talk with 2 entrepreneurs that have been there and done that. Joshua Baer and Jason Cohen have bootstrapped their startups to millions in revenue and also have raised millions in funding.
Many entrepreneurs get confused and think that raising venture capital equals success. It turns out that fundraising totally sucks! It's not any fun and it means less time for growing your business.

Hear the other side of the story that the venture capitalists will never tell you.
