Recently, Rashid launched a new start-up company, and we asked him to write about the role of business process in his new venture He agreed and this month he returns to discuss how he is “bootstrapping” his new company with easily accessible process tools that enable the development of a new product and a customer base at a surprisingly reasonable cost.
