5 Things Founders Shouldn't Skimp On | @getmoreclarity

5 Things Founders Shouldn't Skimp On | @getmoreclarity | Pitch it! | Scoop.it
Whether you’ve raised a few million or you’ve bootstrapped your way, our responsibility as founders is to leverage your resources for maximum gains.
Marc Kneepkens's insight:

Here is an article about great products that you really need for your start up. One of the main ones is funding. The information is essential. Trying to figure it out yourself takes many years. A small fee can get you going all the way in the right direction.
