20: Christopher Gimmer on Bootstrapping to $20k MRR in One Year
3 days ago
Today, on the Early-Stage Founder Show, I’m talking with Christopher Gimmer, the co-founder and CEO of Snappa, a SaaS tool that lets marketers and entrepreneurs create graphics in seconds. Chris has only been in the startup world since 2014, but in that time he built a Bootstrap Theme store up to $10k/mo in sales before selling it, and bootstrapped his current startup to $20k MRR in the first year while only charging customers $10 to $15 a month. In our chat, we cover everything from how Christopher made the decision to go all-in with entrepreneurship to how he validated the idea for Snappa, but where we really dive in is discussing the exact steps he followed to achieve such fast growth in the first year of the business, and the unexpected challenge he and his team faced along the way. You don’t want to miss this one because Christopher holds nothing back.
