In today's episode of How We Got There, I talk with Mike Getchis, who was the VP of Sales at Zenkraft. They were acquired by Brinng earlier this year and he is now Partner Solutions Engineer. Mike was at the helm of Zenkraft's sales organization which bootstrapped their way to a strategic exit but started his Salesforce journey with hands on keyboard. Zenkraft's top gtm strategies included working with SIs, Salesforce, and other ISVs. They found that their AppExchange listing was the starting point for the SI community, so focused on giving them partner-ready materials and a quick way to get them in touch with technical resources. The access to technical resources is an important component to any SI partner program that is often overlooked and mirrors my experience at Conga. Mike shares his experience participating in Salesforce Accelerate and how it improved their positioning and execution of aligning with SEs and AEs. Their SDO page is a high water mark for the ecosystem in terms of enabling the Salesforce SEs to demo their solution. And when they close a deal, they are intentional about a bottoms up strategy to share the win with their peers in a lean way. Zenkraft's app is horizontal so they have a challenge of focus which I hear from a lot of ISVs. In regards to their AppExchange listing, he speaks to the value from an Account Management perspective of knowing when customers refresh their sandbox and how Test Drive can help drive leads. His secret sauce to having over 300 5-star reviews? Asking them. After a successful implementation or great support experience, their whole team asks them to write a review. Here's a closer look at the episode: 1:00 About ZenKraft and How Mike joined the ecosystem 3:00 Salesforce hands on keyboard, what did that teach you about selling in the ecosystem? 4:00 What was the best go to market program that you created there? 9:10 How did you prioritize with a small team that was Bootstrap? 13:20 For folks that haven't gone through an accelerated program, what would you say to them as they consider applying for a future cohort? 15:44 The importance of the AppExchange 17:28 Tips on improving reviews on the AppExchange 18:42 Through your journey at Zenkraft, what are you most proud of?

How This Bootstrapping Baddie Built Her Superfood Biz to $7.5 Million in Sales

Karen Danudjaja, the bootstrapping baddie that built Blume to $7.5 million in sales and 2000 stockists (including Wholefoods!) is on Female Founder World today! The idea for a better-for-you latte line came to Karen in 2017 while working in corporate real estate, having multiple coffee meetings each day and then getting the caffeine jitters.  She started off working a full time nine-to-five and also running Blume at night. By the time Blume hit around $200,000 in sales, Karen went all in and quit her day job to grow the company.  “I felt like there was enough proof of concept, like returning customer feedback from retailers, that I was ready to go all in.” At the beginning cafes were her biggest customer, with healthy spots adding Blume's superfood lattes to the menu. But when lockdowns hit, 85% of Blume's business was food service—and it all shut down over night. Karen quickly brushed up on digital marketing and pivoted the company to ecommerce. “I took a digital marketing course March-April 2020 and then launched our first themed bundle for our ecommerce store in mid-April.”  After that, the business shifted to ecommerce-first during the height of the pandemic, before settling into a true omnichannel strategy that's split 50% wholesale and 50% ecommerce and includes distribution across 2000 cafes, grocery, lifestyle stores, as well as the itsblume.com website. When Karen needed to find a cost-effective way to scale sales without hiring a team, she came up with a smart solution: build a separate, password-gated Shopify store with minimum order sizes for cafes and independent retailers to place bulk orders. “We duplicated our regular Shopify store, adjusted pricing and added a login. We have flows set up for them the same way we do for our DTC customers, targeting abandoned carts and returning customer, but set up specific for the needs of a retailer.” When bigger retailers like Wholefoods and Nordstrom wanted to stock Blume, Karen then built out her sales team. During all of this growth, Karen continued to bootstrap, which meant carefully managing cash flow was key. Her tip to other bootstrapped brands is to push back on retailers' standard 90-day payment terms to make sure invoices are paid more quickly.  “We were really firm from the beginning with retailers that we couldn't do net 90 [to get paid for orders]. Because we were bootstrapped and we didn't have access [to cash], I just literally had to say no.” This year, after ending 2021 with $7.5 million in sales, Blume raised its first round of money from investors, closing $2.5 million in five weeks.  Feeling inspired? We have the exact pitch deck Karen used to raise $2.5 million in five weeks available for you to download in the Female Founder World community home.

Helden und Visionäre – Dein Weg zur sinnvollen Arbeit und Social Entrepreneurship

In dieser Folge geht es diesmal nicht, wie sonst üblich, um den typischen sozialen oder ökologischen Impact, sondern eher um das Miteinander – das Menschliche. Mitnehmen könnt ihr auch aus dieser Episode wieder einiges. Digitalisierung + Miteinander = Match Mit der Technik und Digitalisierung geht das Persönliche und Miteinander verloren. So oft viele klagende Stimmen in Deutschland und der Welt. In vielen Bereichen mag das durchaus stimmen, wenn man nicht die “Extra Meile” geht. Aber da stellt sich die Frage: Was möchte man erreichen, hinterlassen und auslösen? Die Antwort auf diese Fragen bildet für ein Unternehmen den Grundstein für die Werte und Prinzipien. Diese Fragen kann man analytisch und zahlengetrieben sehen – oder aber auch mit dem Herzen. Für Georg persönlich ist das Herz und die Emotion, die Tamara und Lea ausstrahlen, was sie im Online-Shop kommunizieren und vor allem die „Extra Meile“, die sie durch ihren persönlichen Einsatz gehen, viel wichtiger als die reinen Zahlen. Das Sparschwein schlachten Auch eine großartige Frage: Wie beginnt Erfolg? Das ist unterschiedlich – im Falle von Bringsl ist das Zauberwort: Bootstrap. Bootstrapping kennt man eigentlich aus dem Programmieren, doch auch im Gründungsumfeld ist es ein gängiger Begriff. Hier bedeutet Bootstrapping als Low-Budget Weg der Startup-Finanzierung. Das heißt, alles wurde aus eigenen Mitteln realisiert und selbst bezahlt. Oder anders: Bootstrapping ist eine Finanzierungsform der Existenzgründung, bei der auf eine externe Finanzierung verzichtet wird. Auch wenn man generell Online-Shops mit Bootstrap aufbauen kann, bei Bringsl ist das etwas Besonderes gewesen. Denn Bringsl ist kein typischer Online-Shop. Tamara Amalia und Lea Woltiri geben hier einen tollen Einblick in ihr Startup und wie sie zu Ihren Entscheidungen gekommen sind. Das Ding mit der Sichtbarkeit Was Bringsl klar macht: Einen nicht offensichtlichen Weg zu gehen und Brücken zu bauen, macht Bootstrap schwierig.er. Wenn man dann etwas macht, was kaum erwartet und eben noch nicht gesucht wird, stellt sich die Frage: Wie werde ich eigentlich sichtbar? Das eigentliche Ziel deines Startups wird nicht immer das sein, was du am Anfang kommunizieren wirst – alleine schon, weil sich dein Startup weiter entwickeln wird. Georg hat das bei Bringsl sehr gut analysiert. Am Anfang hätte Georg Bringsl den Slogan „Gönne dir was!” verpasst. Das hatte auch gepasst. Mit der Zeit haben Tamara Amalia und Lea Woltiri und ihr Team haben schnell gemerkt, dass die Kund*innen aber auch Anderen etwas Gutes tun und die im Shop gekauften Dinge verschenken wollen. Daher kommt bei Georg nun eher folgendes an: „Gönne dir etwas, indem du jemand anderes etwas gönnst.“ Gut, oder? Wer kauft was wann? Wahrscheinlich eine der Königsfragen bei Online-Shop-Besitzer*innen. Der Shop und die Kunden geben genug Daten her, um das analysieren zu können. Man kann zum Beispiel auch sehen, wenn Käufer und Empfänger unterschiedlich sind. So kann man das Produkt, die Dienstleistung, das Marketing oder auch den Online-Shop entsprechend anpassen. Unternehmertum – Nur die Harten kommen in den Garten Wenn du dich schon ein bisschen mit der Gründungsszene in Deutschland beschäftigst, wirst du folgenden Punkt schon kennen: Unternehmertum wird in Deutschland oft als hartes Geschäft gesehen. Georg, sozialdemokratisch aufgewachsen, kennt diesen Umstand ebenfalls. Versuchen wir nochmal einen Sichtwechsel: Als Unternehmer*in schaut man auf das Unternehmertum nämlich etwas anders. Man merkt, dass eine persönliche, offene und herzliche Beziehung wichtig ist. So kommen nicht nur die “Harten in den Garten”. Denn Offenheit und Herzlichkeit sind Türöffner, so haben sich auch Tamara und Lea gefunden. Oder anders: Das, was du machst, kommt auch zu dir. Über Bringsl Bringsl ist der erste persönliche Online-Shop mit Fahrrad-Lieferservice für süße, herzhafte und außergewöhnliche Mitbringsl – liebevoll hergestellt in kleinen Manufakturen in und um Köln herum. Bringsl unterstützt Manufakturen, die sich für die Umwelt und soziale Projekte engagieren. Fair, umweltschonend, natürliche Zutaten, regional produziert (soweit es geht) und Unterstützung sozialer Projekte. Das zeichnet Bringsl aus.

Scott Millard (@scottcmillard) fell in love with shooting, editing, and producing videos at age 13. While working in marketing at tech start ups over the last few years, Scott was shocked by how few SasS companies had good product explainer videos. Most of the videos he encountered were either produced via Fiverr or cost tens of thousands of dollars. Scott believed the market would appreciate a middle-of-the-road option — so, he left his day job and founded Videospark.  Tune in to hear the story of how Scott scaled Videospark to nearly $10k in MRR in just a few short months.  About the Show Zero to (point) One is hosted by yours truly, Zach Busekrus (@zboozee).    I'm an entrepreneur in residence at a marketing firm by day and building my own start up Sponstayneous by night.    Sponstayneous brings subscribers the best last-minute deals and upcoming steals on Airbnb.  My wife and I co-founded the company while living full-time on Airbnb last year.   There's a lot of podcasts out there that feature entrepreneurs: once they've gone public once they've had an exit or even once they've made their first million.   But not as many that feature the first-time Product Hunt launchers, the Indie Hacker that has yet to go viral on Twitter, or the micro influencer who wants to build their first niche product.    And there's where this show comes in. Zero to (point) One features a collection of ideas that may go nowhere, or just might change the world, from people you've never heard of, who may just become household names.    A nod to tech founder Peter Thiel's Zero to One framework, Zero to (point) One explores the beginnings of (very) early-stage creators and entrepreneurs whose first chapters are still being written.     Each guest featured on the show has MRR of $500 - $10k (no more and no less) or has 10k - 100k followers on Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter.    Come and meet the next generation of builders wherever you get your podcasts every Friday morning.    If you'd like to be on the show or if you know someone who might be a good fit for the show, send me an email at zach@sponstayneous.com or DM me on Twitter @zboozee.    Finally, be sure to subscribe — who knows?  You may just meet your future co-founder, your next great investment, or the next Steve or Elon right here.

Don Skaggs founded the manufacturer US Biotex Corporation, which he started on a farm back in 1991 and grew to over 150 products in production over 22 years before being bought out.  Don has also been the President of the Inventors Network Kentucky for nearly 20 years now.  Today Don is going to share some valuable knowledge on how inventors, startups, and small manufacturers can start their own manufacturing facility locally for their invention idea, then how to grow and scale, and what benefits there are for taking this production path. Today you will hear us talk about: See if customers would buy samples, and learn from them. Bootstrap to find out what works. Start with a small batch so that you can test the market. It's easier to manufacture locally than you think, just start with a basic part of the manufacturing process. Design using as many Original Equipment Manufactured parts as possible. As you scale production, there are a number of benefits from running your own manufacturing operation. Your own manufacturing gives you a lot of solutions. Find an innovation where it's common in one industry, but not discovered in another. Stay close to R&D and close to marketing and sales, so that you can put the two together. Time, money, and wisdom. Learn from your mistakes, and from your customers. When you're small, you can connect marketing, sales, R&D, and production. Find the intersection of what you are passionate about, and what you are good at.

In our last installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart started teaching us how to bundle an app/website using our bundler of choice, Webpack. The app/website he's creating for us is very simplified but is intended to allow us to exercise every one of the kinds of things we'd want to bundle. This week we finish all of the tools he wanted to teach us to bundle. In PBS 138, after explaining to us why we would want to do this, and initializing things, he taught us to import a pure JavaScript library with jQuery as an example, and a pure CSS library with basic Bootstrap as the example. In this week's show, we learn how to install and use Mustache for templating in a Webpack world. The process is quite a bit different from how we originally learned to implement Mustache in Programming By Stealth. Then we learn how Bootstrap 5 now lets us import just what we need (instead of all of Bootstrap). We need some fancy icons so Bart teaches us about Bootstrap icons which he now favors for free icons over Font Awesome. Our web app wouldn't be complete if we didn't have a fun font, so we learn to import free web fonts from Fontsource all with Webpack. Like the first half of the Webpack worked example, Bart's process of doing repetitive actions but for different reasons definitely helped cement the concepts for me.
