I dropped out of UCLA at 19 years old to pursue a startup that connects tutors & students. With only $800, I bootstrapped the company well into 7 figures in revenue without taking on a single dollar in capital. AMA!
My name is Ryan Neman and I co-founded HeyTutor (www.heytutor.com) with my long time high school friend Skyler Lucci. HeyTutor is a hyper-local marketplace that connects tutors and students. We currently offer more than 250 subjects and work with over 7,000 tutors in the US. Our HQ is in Los Angeles, CA, and our full-time team of 12 works out of a house that my co-founder and I live in. #startuplife
My partner and I founded the company in 2013 with only $800 at 19 years old. We managed to bootstrap the company well into 7 figures in revenue without taking on any capital. In this AMA I'll be happy to speak about my experience running a startup at a young age with limited resources. I am a firm believer in being scrappy and creative when starting your business. Make it work at a small scale, and slowly add fuel to the fire. I'll also be happy to speak about anything business related; from growth hacks, to running a team, to fundraising. AMA!
