Why Technology is Essential to the Success of Entrepreneurs in Developing Countries

The growth in new technology has given our generation the power to connect and collaborate with millions of people around the world.

Technology's adoption in under developed countries around the world, has given many entrepreneurs wings to educate, get organized, get noticed, and raise capital for projects to make a substantial change for the better.

At Good Mind Hunting we have set out to make this concept a reality through Collaboration Quests; a digital platform for like minded individuals to collaborate, share ideas and find solutions to some of the worlds biggest issues.

“Even the simplest action initiated by a small group of individuals can impact humanity as a whole. Historically that has happened in special places, like coffee houses or chance encounters. Today that is happening online." Marc Bernier, founder of Good Mind Hunting. 
Recently released on Entrepreneur is a wonderful article on Collaboration and Good Mind Hunting's Collaboration Quests, by Elizabeth Schaeffer Brown.

We're excited to officially launch soon.

Executing Your Idea Starts With a Small Single Step

Executing an idea - especially the big ones, like a new company - can be overwhelming and lead to procrastination. That's why taking the first step is crucial. I like the idea put out here by Joe Gebbia, the founder of Airbnb. Envision and draft out a sketch of yourself being there and doing everything that your role in your idea would involved. It's a great first step.
