Eating well, but cheaply as a start-up
Nick DeMonner, Lisa Hansen and Mike Minardi are trying to launch a start-up into a tough market with just modest funding. Which means they’re cutting costs at every turn. But they’ve found that a low-budget lifestyle doesn’t mean eating ramen every day. The San Jose trio have discovered how to eat well inexpensively, and they’re sharing their discoveries in a new cookbook called Eat, Drink, Breath Like a Start-up. From Rubba Dub Rubs to Boostrappin’ Beans and Rice, this is food that won’t tip the balance sheet in the wrong direction. The Mercury News talked with the three about the book and their soon-to-launch web site aimed at entrepreneurs called Start-up Living. Also, tune in to next week’s episode of Inside Silicon Valley, where we chat with the team about their new start-up.
