10 apps para emprendedores productivos

For entrepreneurs, resources are limited and the challenge is to manage them in the best possible way. Among these challenges, time is one of the main (and sometimes the only) assets available. In that sense, efficient time management and increasing productivity turn out to be essential tasks for every entrepreneur who wants to see their business grow.

Using the technological tools available can make a big difference. That is why we have created a list of applications that can help you become an entrepreneur and help you to manage the available resources in a much more productive way.

In addition, our list of productivity apps for entrepreneurs is focused on mobile apps. Why? According to the latest data from comScore, in the United States, users spend two thirds of their time viewing digital content in smartphones and tablets. In this scenario, mobile apps represent about half the time we spend online.

It seems then that the ability to become more productive is literally in our hands.
