For those who don’t know TiE, it was founded in 1992 in Silicon Valley by Indian-American entrepreneurs, but now has more of a South Asian orientation (with us Euro-Americans also welcome to participate).

The description of the event doesn’t sound very “ultra”, but just the normal definition of bootstrapping:
Learn how to manage your Business Operations tightly to run on minimum cash. Lead from the front. Build your team with the right values. This session will be ideal for professionals starting out, for entrepreneurs who are at that critical growth stage and for team members.
Still, I support anything that encourages and disseminates best practices in bootstrapping to current or prospective entrepreneurs, and hope people will attend.

I probably won’t be able to make it because I’m scheduled to be traveling on business, but I’ll look for it on the TiESV video archive.
