Insulating our recording studio with dollar bills

Jon and Justin respond to the new funding options available for bootstrappers, mainly Earnest Capital.

The GP, Tyler Tringas, told us what types of companies he's looking to invest in:

  1. Organic customer acquisition channels
  2. Low levels of structural churn (ready to stay customers for a long period of time)
  3. Founder is a good fit
  4. Product launched and has revenue
  5. In a space that Tyler feels comfortable with

They're looking for a 3x-5x return from their investment; which they'll take from founder earnings. (Read more about that here)
