Learn from Superheroes for founders, leaders, whoever. Good post I came across recently, fun and viable so it does make sense to share it here.

Your favorite superhero has the power to save your business too. It’s time for the business owners to take lessons from superheroes, and implement them in order to achieve success.

Samuel Pavin‘s insight:

A great, visual, and smart post compiling accurate pieces of advice for anybody out there but also entrepreneurs.

Not everybody is a ninja or guru or whatever sexy name will come in the future but everybody has strenghts and weaknesses.

Identifying them, acknowledging them and working with or around them is key to make the most out of everyday.

So, are you a Wolverine ?

See on Scoop.itEntrepreneurship in the World

Everywhere from New York City to Omaha would like to be the next tech start-up capital. Here’s what actually makes Silicon Valley and San Francisco hotbeds of tech start-up activity.

Samuel Pavin‘s insight:

A shared secret sauce in fact. That is so true though and that is the exact reflection of the thoughts of a "newbie" to the Valley and SF I recently spoke to.

This place is packed with entrepreneurs and the secret is there is no secrecy. That is also why there can not be many copies of a place like this in the world. Just in Europe secrecy and NDAs are the entrepreneurs’ priorities… .

Anyway, a very good look into what makes the Valley special and what the missing ingredients are for all the others.
