Hiten Shah will be a Keynote Speaker at the 11th Founder Showcase, coming up on July 25th in Silicon Valley. In advance of his talk we are sharing a great interview of Hiten posted yesterday on TechCrunch, where he discusses his experience starting both bootstrapped and venture-backed companies, the "misconception" many founders have about their prospects for raising money, and the current trends he is seeing across the startup and venture capital scene. 

Hiten is the CEO of KISSmetrics, where he is building a data driven solution to help online businesses make better business decisions (Tip: if you are looking to easily track and analyze your conversion funnel, be sure to check it out). He is also passionate about helping other entrepreneurs, currently advising several startups; including AppSumo, Buffer, Cloudability, iSocket, Kicksend, LaunchRock, Lolapps, Recurly, SlideShare, SocializedHR, Visual.ly, and more.

It's a very quick and informative interview, so don't miss it;
