Tools and resources for startups and entrepreneurs

Geschrieben von Manuela Toteva

Digital technologies are affecting industry and business. There is an overall change in the way products and services are delivered and monetized. In the context of global and dynamic changes, which cover many different areas, collaboration does not remain unaffected by this trend. The change is transforming the global workforce, and we are expected to have not only basic computer skills but also digital skills that enable them to operate the full range of revolutionary technological tools.

Entrepreneurs and larger business organizations see digital collaboration solutions as an effective way to stay relevant in an increasingly competitive world. It is efficiency on one hand, customer engagement and attention on the other. Hence a variety of forms of communication on the other predominates.

Templates for planning, goal setting, role distribution etc. are needed optimize the organization and workflow in startups is a current topic and object of interest for many companies that offer innovative solutions. The creation and offering of management tools from entrepreneurs to entrepreneurs who need help to organize their work processes with consultation, training, and mentoring on topics such as management, leadership, business development, strategies, planning, and others.

Today, many companies and startups, after recruiting their first people, face a lack of a unified direction, plan, and goals to which the entire team strives. Many tools offer separate solutions, but experience shows that many people use tables for much of their management structure, which, however, is often difficult to make clear and specialized to the company’s goals.

Startup Stash, for example, is a collection of tools and resources for startups to help startups around the world find the right solution for their needs. The service has filters to facilitate the search process.

It includes 400 products in 40 categories, such as Idea Generation, Early Consumers, Marketing, Capital Raising, and Customer Support. Each category consists of selected resources and tools, each with its detail page that shows little information about the product.

The directory focuses on recruiting tools and resources that offer great quality. Most of them are free or at a low price. The aim is to help start-up entrepreneurs save a significant part of their time, staff, and money.

In addition to the collections of selected products, Startup Stash provides the user with enough information to narrow his choice when viewing. Each product has images, a personalized inside description, social links, and a website link.
