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.

  • Recently featured on the Bootstrapped to Millions panel at SXSW, and interviewed on Andrew Warner's Mixergy.
