Presented by our DC Chapter, join Lloyed Lobo as he shares how they were able to bootstrap to 8 figures in revenue with no outside funding!

The Founders Network Washington DC Chapter is excited to announce the launch of our hybrid event – a combination of both virtual and in-person!

Community is taking center stage at organizations across all industries. With traditional marketing techniques reaching a saturation point and product features appearing to differ very little, a thriving community can become your single greatest asset by acting as a force multiplier for your business and also enabling you to stand out in a fragmented market.

However, building and nurturing a community takes time – relationships cannot be an afterthought. When put front and center, a community can be a great acquisition channel, product feedback mechanism, brand differentiator, and retention lever.

In this session, Lloyed Lobo, Cofounder & President of Boast.AI, shares how they were able to bootstrap to 8 figures in revenue with no outside funding. Specifically, Lloyed will cover:

  • Identify your ideal customers
  • Validate your idea and get to product-market fit
  • Identify the right marketing channels
  • Make your product sticky to keep customers coming back

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
