With my partner we founded one of the UK's leading Digital Marketing Agencies. We started it with a £5,000 overdraft in 1999 and sold the business in 2007 for £10,000,000.

In this paper we share some of the initial tips we suggest are founding principles for launching and growing without outside investment. All these tips are from experience. If you would like to see more background to the reasons why we suggest these tips, please see http://www.jamieriddell.net/2009/12/10-tips-for-launching-a-business-without-investment/
