Nick Carter will be joining the roster of speakers at the upcoming SW Indianapolis held November 12 to 14. The founder of customer relationship management software firm AddressTwo, Carter will present his experiences as his startup’s head honcho in a unique case study. Titled “From Bootstrap to Bluechip,” Carter intends to share how he forged ahead with his business without bringing investors on board.

According to Carter, bootstrapping his company preserved his ownership of AddressTwo.  “With my own startup, I continuously debated the pros and cons of bringing on investors,” he explains. “Many startups think that their success hangs on their ability to get outside funding. I made a conscious decision to take a slower path, which has allowed me to grow a profitable company that I still own. I hope that my experience can help entrepreneurs make decisions that are right for them.”

Nick Carter’s methods may be unorthodox, but his background speaks for itself. Carter first dipped into entrepreneurial waters at the age of 16 when he founded his first startup. Since then he has become an expert in managing sales teams and currently busies himself with expanding AddressTwo nationwide. His “From Bootstrap to Bluechip” talk offers a unique perspective on strategizing the often treacherous and difficult paths startups must travel on the road to growth.
