A whopping 60% of the Inc. 500 companies were bootstrapped on less than $10,000. No angel money, no seed rounds, no Series A. Bootstrapped to revenue growth which wins them an Inc. 500 award. I find this truly remarkable. Something to chew on, think about and reflect on... We might have an obsession with venture capital which isn't quite healthy anymore.
