Session Description: Put On the Bootstraps and Let's Talk Alternative Funding with Roaming Hunger: Founder and CEO Ross Resnick will talk about the risks and rewards that come with bootstrapping and what it takes to run an independent company - one that can stand on its own without the help of investors. He’s the prime example of someone who’s not only surviving, but thriving. He truly believes that the best money for funding was his own. Rather than going to VCs and crowdsourcing to finance his company, Ross Resnick took Roaming Hunger on an alternative route – bootstrapping and going at it alone without any money from outside sources. Five years later, Roaming Hunger continues to expand its business, tracking 4,700 food trucks across the country and providing food truck catering solutions and marketing opportunities to consumers and businesses nationwide. *Part of the Yahoo Media Innovation Sessions

By understanding the psychology that lies behind every post, 'like', 'share' and comment, we can craft messages that trigger these responses, because it's only 'emotive' brands that fit seamlessly into the social graph. In this fascinating exploration of the inner, psychological mechanics of 'social' Patrick Mulford will examine the FOUR REASONS (yes there's ONLY four!) that people use social networks, and why every brand will ultimately need to understand them in order to survive.
