Q&A With Rob Walling On The TinySeed Accelerator


Earlier this month, veteran techie and Minnesota transplant Rob Walling announced his latest pursuit: TinySeed.

Positioned as “the next generation startup accelerator,” TinySeed will provide founders with financial, social, and peer-driven capital under a cohort model.

Designed for “people who haven’t raised money yet, and don’t wish to ever raise venture capital (i.e. institutional money),” it’s targeting a class of companies and entrepreneurs who self-fund their pursuits, sometimes known as “bootstrapping.”

When did the idea formulate and what was the aha?

I had the idea originally about seven years ago, I have it written down right here in my notebook it says “YC for bootstrappers”!
