Start Small, Stay Small: A Developer`s Guide to Launching a Startup

Rob Walling, Mike Taber

Start Small, Stay Small is a step-by-step guide to launching a self-funded startup. If you`re a desktop, mobile or web developer, this book is your blueprint to getting your startup off the ground with no outside investment.

This book intentionally avoids topics restricted to venture-backed startups such as: honing your investment pitch, securing funding, and figuring out how to use the piles of cash investors keep placing in your lap.

This book assumes:

* You don`t have $6M of investor funds sitting in your bank account
* You`re not going to relocate to the handful of startup hubs in the world
* You`re not going to work 70 hour weeks for low pay with the hope of someday making millions from stock options

There`s nothing wrong with pursuing venture funding and attempting to grow fast like Amazon, Google, Twitter, and Facebook. It just so happened that most people are not in a place to do this.
