Forming and cultivating a small business can be tricky at the best of times and downright anxiety-inducing at the worst! You’re building an entire company from scratch, and everything is your responsibility, from actually doing the work for your clients to hiring and finances. You’re starting with fewer resources than your more established counterparts, and your stress levels are higher than ever.
Being a small business owner can become overwhelming, but modern technology can help make your life as a leader a lot easier.
As a new business owner, it may seem that the list of necessary skills is endless…
Currently, researchers, academic institutions, and journalists are standing in front of a real challenge: to overcome the pandemic we desperately need accessible and open communication on a global level.
Open-access leads to innovation. But sharing expert knowledge isn’t an easy task. In fact, it’s one of the most complex issues scientists and politics need to solve quickly.
Where exactly is the problem?
Publishing houses have to generate revenue to survive. Therefore, access to papers and journals isn’t always as open as demanded. …
Is there a greater paradigm than the need for tech-savvy people and coding to develop and disrupt traditional industries? One of the most common features to digitize planet earth lead us to ridiculously high demand for software development in every company.
That changed rapidly during the last years and people start to recognize.
Besides the most complex task right now, e.g. the evolution of Quantum Computing and progressive artificial intelligence solutions, there is a complete shift for founders and CEOs who relied heavily on software developers.
It’s time to update the paradigm around coding.
Not long ago, we emphasized the…
An orchestra full of pain, disconnected moments, today’s family anecdotes that are still both painful and somehow far away.
Where does torture begin? How much is still there of a human being when he just sits and stares and keeps silent?
When he cries quietly and writes the names of the family members on a piece of paper to remember? When he refuses to take horrible pills from even more horrible strangers, not knowing that it is us who are sitting in front of him?
It’s about our abundance of technology and lack of knowledge about it.
About what we…
Lenovo is the world’s largest PC manufacturer with more than 57,000 employees in about 60 countries. A large part of this success has been attributed to the company’s strong foundation and a company culture of diversity and inclusion.
In explaining how they’ve been able to successfully serve such a large global customer base, Yolanda Conyers, the company’s chief diversity officer had said:
This takes more than out-of-the-box thinking because it’s not just one box. It’s a hundred different boxes. A million different boxes. It takes every dimension of our diversity. …
I started studying Entrepreneurship & Digital Innovation at one of the most famous universities for entrepreneurship. The founder gave “entrepreneurship” its infamous name. For my master I traveled from Shanghai to Silicon Valley, from Facebook to Salesforce, to learn entrepreneurial thinking from the best CEOs and engineers of the world.
But soon I realized entrepreneurship isn’t just a business tool. In fact, a lot of managers mix up entrepreneurship with a pure management strategy someone could implement or avoid.
But entrepreneurship can be even more. It’s a mindset and decision-making vehicle to simplify complex moments in your life.
Nevertheless, I’m prepared as hell and I know one thing for sure. The jury members will question my return on investment calculations. Heck, they’ll question every tiny chart and formula on my pitch deck. Because that’s what investors do. And that’s what I’m here for.
One year later in Berlin, I’m standing in front of an audience again. Nobody judges (at least I hope so), but everyone listens. I’m a speaker at an important panel talking about the future of NGOs, the lack of investments and a large amount of bureaucracy coming from the government.
At panels like this, the…
Ever had the feeling you’re not invited to a great party?
Well, most women in science and business know exactly how that hurts.
Besides a lot of complaints from women and one hilarious Tumblr blog, a software company chose to step in and presented a way how advanced technology, e.g. artificial intelligence, can be utilized to support marginalized groups.
They implemented high-precision facial recognition to identify gender roles accurately at the most relevant events in the world.
Over 60.000 analyzed images and an accuracy rate of more than 99% with thousands of anonymous data sets later, the report they published…
Let’s take an example.
As an aspiring digital nomad, you maybe ask yourself how you could earn money online. Or as an employee who is ready to jump out of the office window, you’re trying to find ways to earn money and live in Bali.
You start to google “earn money online”. You see all the results.
Traveling lighter and easier is the №1 goal for many digital nomads, but sometimes you need to treat yourself with the perfect gear to survive your life on tour. Who else would you ask about this than all the co-working globetrotters from Vietnam to Buenos Aires?
From smooth Wifi in the forest and high-pressure coffee makers on the go, from water cleaning bottles to airport safe and conscious shampoos.
It’s also a mindblowing opportunity to reduce your ecological footprint as a frequent flyer. Reusability is an important criterion to consider when traveling the most endangered ecosystems in the world.
