Abstract: This paper contributes to the general knowledge of bootstrap financing among new family ventures in two ways. Firstly, this research reveals which human capital characteristics of the owner-manager has an impact on financial bootstrapping use. The empirical results indicate that the use of bootstrapping techniques does not depend upon the founder’s education, but that it is a skill which is absorbed from self-employed parents or during the founder’s prior work and management experiences. Secondly, in line with the resource dependency theory, we show that a relationship between financial bootstrapping and venture growth is present.
