Video Tonight: It’s All About You!

Ironically, this week I had some ‘bootstrapping’ challenges of my own with my website and email, and this morning we’re finding out that our video crew for tonight may be stuck in DC. I just talked with David Welch and as he put it, we’re going to make lemonade out of lemons. Bootstrapping sometimes means getting creative, not always being a perfectionist, and involving your network.

We’re still working out the details, but we’re planning on using more inexpensive cameras and also getting you involved in the interview process. David Welch has agreed to help you learn how to interview and record. Heck, this may even turn out better this way! We’d like the theme of the interviews to be Bootstrapping Biotech, here are some ideas for questions–feel free to come with your own questions or be ready to answer!
