I'm Arvid, and I've been building businesses for a while now. I started, grew, and sold FeedbackPanda with my partner Danielle Simpson mid-2019 for a life-changing amount of money. Before that, I started a handful of businesses that succeeded, a few that failed, and lots that never got off the ground.

I started as a software developer. I used to work for agencies, as a consultant, for VC-backed and traditional businesses. Now I can do whatever I want. So I choose to help people become successful bootstrappers, as that's what I know best.

Currently, I write at The Bootstrapped Founder about what I learned in my decade of being a founder, an engineer, and a bootstrapper. On that blog, I have published Zero to Sold, a guide to bootstrapping. Here on MentorCruise, I want to help founders apply those lessons to their businesses.

I'm German. You can expect brutal honesty and no-nonsense advice. No time to mess around.
