    Bootstrapping means managing your time as closely as your money. Here’s how to do it.

    By Ellie Cachette (Founder & CEO, ConsumerBell)

    While venture-backed tech startups seem to get all the press, there are many, many ways to start your company.

    Some entrepreneurs do it while hanging onto their day job full-time.

    A founder of Women 2.0 explains how the startup scene is evolving for women and offers networking advice for aspiring female founders.

    By Vivek Wadhwa (Contributor, Inc)

    In my last two articles, I discussed why, based on my research on immigrant entrepreneurs, I believed that Silicon Valley was the world’s greatest meritocracy. That was before I moved to the Valley and learned that this so-called meritocracy is highly imperfect, omitting women, blacks, and Hispanics.
