Bootstrap is by definition a "mentoring community," and we serve as mentors for each other. However, this occurs on an adhoc basis. Here we list folks who have expressed an interest in mentoring bootstrappers in a more formal an committed way.
We have only done a first-pass vetting of these folks as potential mentors. If you use them, send Bijoy feedback on your experience with them!
