4 great start-ups: Staying connected
There’s nothing worse than losing connectivity when trying to work on the go. From making the most of 4G to tethering – how do our entrepreneurs cope?
For any start-up founder, time is money. Long gone are the days of 9-5 working when you’re running your own business – and being able to stay connected 24/7 is crucial.
While a lack of connectivity in this day and age can create some much needed headspace occasionally (as Mallow and Marsh founder Harriot Pleydell-Bouverie comments, giving you time to step back and notice what’s going on day-to-day), a lost connection could result in a crucial sale loss – at a time when every penny counts.
Whether it’s having the backup of 4G while travelling around the country to help you look at rich documents without WiFi, like Amer Hassan of Minicabit, or tethering your laptop to enable you to answer emails from by the pool in Thailand like Darren Litton of Cocoba – technology is making it easier than ever to stay connected.
If you’ve got a great data package, like Steer’s Amelia Humfress, there’s no reason why you should ever lose touch again.
