Spreading your startup, especially when bootstrapping, is all about facilitating win-win cooperations with places where you want your startup to be.

For me: Spreading Netty to people who are interested in networking is all about making win-win co-ops with places where the networkers are. One of the interesting places are StudentNode!

StudentNode is a platform where companies post events. But not any events; only events made FOR students. It’s a really cool site which features a lot of different companies. The initiative is intended to boost the relationship between students and our future employers. There are frequent events where students can get to know how it is to work at different companies.
E.g. I attended one of the events today which actually turned out to be a challenge from PwC. It was called ProjectX. Me and a teammate went into a room and tried to find the key to get out of the room. It was a fun exercise of teamwork.
After that I emailed StudentNode, suggesting a coop.

    Ivar, I like your netty idea! But it took a while for me to understand what it was. If the idea is to become successful you should focus on your Elevator pitch and maybe change the way you present the idea, so people get sucked into your hype right away!

      Thanks for the feedback Douglas!

      Yeah I’m aware that the elevator pitch I gave is far from it’s potential.

      The thing is that I have to pitch differently to different people.

      Some people think that networking is important. They love the idea.
      But some people aren’t aware of the importance of networking. Then I have to pitch the importance of networking instead!

      Thanks once again
