22 INCREDIBLE NEW TOOLS FOR ENTREPRENEURS & STARTUP FOUNDERS
By ListHunt, October 2015
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!

You can be sure not to miss anything important. You will spend less time searching and more time actually learning.The discovery and learning processes are different. It is important to do both separately. When you are discovering new information, be in discovery mode. When it is time to learn the information, then focus on being in learning mode.
