Building a company from nothing to a multi-million dollar success requires hard work, perseverence and a bit of luck - all in the face of incredible odds.
So why are some entrepreneurs able to build massively profitable empires while others can't reach break even? What's their secret?
Come and hear exactly how two founders built and grew companies to millions in revenue and billion dollar valuations. They will join Best Practices host Joe Chin, serial CEO, in an interactive discussion.
- Founded Harvest, which he bootstrapped to millions in revenue, servicing thousands of companies in over 100 countries.
- Recently featured on the Bootstrapped to Millions panel at SXSW, and interviewed on Andrew Warner's Mixergy.
- Founded Iridesco, a NYC-based web design company that has spawned Harvest, Co-op, and Hear,Hear (Danny's bio)
- Founded and served as chairman and CEO of About.com, which grew to a $1.7 billion valuation, and was eventually acquired by The New York Times Co.
- Employed directly or through joint ventures, Scott has worked at the highest levels of Warner, Viacom, News Corp, PBS, IBM, and MCI.
- Currently Founder and CEO of AdKeeper - which was recently featured in The New York Times, WSJ, and Forbes. (Scott's bio)
