In this episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, Alex Theuma is joined by bootstrapper, SaaStock Founder Member and CSO at Expandi: Stefan Smulders! Stefan shares how Expandi bootstrapped to $7M in just over two years.

Go hire people – I was scared to do it, somehow. It was all new for us, but I really feel good now beside all these people in the company call, as they are way more clever than me and are solving things faster… so it’s kind of a relief.

In this episode Stefan shares:

  • Expandi’s founding story
  • Why he joined the SaaStock Founder Membership (SFM)
  • How they scaled Expandi so quickly
  • Examples of what has worked well for the company
  • Their social focus (and why he got booted out of LinkedIn…!)
  • The hardest thing about bootstrapping a startup in 2023
  • Why he moved from CEO to CSO

and more!
