Textbook Sellers: The Next Generation

from the startups-still-going-strong dept

Continuing on the discussion from yesterday about new startups that are learning to build viable businesses by bootstrapping instead of raising cash is the story of a new dormroom-based startup in DC that is designed to help students needing text books match up with students who have those textbooks and are looking to sell them. This is an idea that has been around for ages, and others have tried it, but it shows how more people are starting companies without the idea of going for venture capital. These were just two college students who saw a need, figured out how they could fill it at little expense and are moving forward from that point. I have no idea if it will succeed (and, in this instance, I think it will face plenty of challenges), but it’s nice to see that they don’t have any interest in raising venture capital.
