Clifford Oravec is the founder of Veles International, Ltd., which operates a portfolio of niche websites and SaaS applications, including Tamboo, an innovative service that helps businesses better understand how people use and behave on their website.

Prior to his work at Veles International, Ltd., Clifford worked for over fifteen years in various roles of IT, including development, architecture, and management.

Clifford is an enthusiastic member of the bootstrapped startup community, and is the author of the upcoming book, The Epic Guide to Bootstrapping a Startup By Yourself, which is based on his wildly popular Medium series.

When he's not busy bootstrapping, Clifford usually spends his "free time" distance and trail running. He recently completed his first ultramarathon, the Burning River Back 50, a 50 mile race that takes place overnight through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Cleveland and Summit County Metroparks.
