Wednesday, August 15, 2007 at 3:30pm by Site Administrator

Welcome to the fifth Carnival of Bootstrapping Entrepreneurs (CoBE #5). Apologies for the delay from last week. Critieria for inclusion: relevant to bootstrapping, entrepreneuring, startup/ small businesses.

To be fair to everyone, entries are selected approximately in order of submission. Please support this carnival by linking back to this post. Because of the volume of entries, I’m reducing the number of summaries and present 1-3 picks of the week.

Picks of the Week

This week’s picks:
