Ian Brodie started Grovia.io, a partner marketing software and services company, at the beginning of the pandemic. Two years later the startup was acquired in a high-value exit by industry-leading Acceleration Partners. Grovia was primarily bootstrapped, and in those two years Grovia grew to 25 employees with no institutional capital. Today, Ian helps founders build differentiated startups that grow quickly, attract M&A attention, and do not require VC funding. Ian enables bootstrappers to orient their startup for a quick exit.
