Bootstrap Enterprise 2.0
Following on the pre-meeting discussion that we had together before two meetings ago, Tom Brown and I are going to have a pre-meeting before Monday evening main meeting on what we are calling "Enterprise 2.0".
Details: 5:30 pm this Monday (before main meeting) open Enterprise 2.0 Discussion "Matching un-met needs with un-used resources"
This is going to be an open discussion to discuss "what is possible" and how we, as businesses, can organize and work together as bootstrappers. The idea here is to brainstorm and discuss how is it that we can work together at a more integrated level- tha is beyond just asking each other on this list for referrals.

These components work interchangeably to add to the overall worth of a product or service.
"Value is created from the relationship between the company, its customers, intermediaries, complementors and suppliers (1). Two types of values that are added to a value network are tangible and intangible value exchanges..."
