Small business administration: keep it lean and simple, don’t be afraid of being bootstrapped.

It is always difficult to choose the right structure and tools when starting your business. This workshop will help you understand the benefits of keeping it simple. Choose wisely the structure of your company. Choose your accounting and payroll software. Employees versus independent contractors. Benefits/ no benefits. Choose your investors wisely and stay your own boss: compelling reasons not to raise VC funds for your startup.
