18 Outstanding New Tools For Entrepreneurs & Startup Founders
A while ago we started a new ListHunt series that finds the best new tools for startups and founders from the past week. The main driving force behind this new series was that we were finding a bunch of great tools, but they did not fit into the demographic that we were catering to with the daily ListHunts.
With our audience made up of a lot of founders and people in the startup community it was an easy decision to start this new series. We know that building a startup takes up a ton of time and you do not have time to look through all the new tools. That is where we come in, making your life just a little less hectic!
