As of late, we’ve spotted a resurgence in the number of start-up businesses showing up on the radar, and thought it worth noting. Similar to the great amount of dot-coms that sprung up within the last decade, the start-up seems to be making a comeback… a strong one at that.
With the promise of excitement and the opportunity to make a big impact in a small organization, we’ll be keeping our eye on these companies, and thought that you might like to, as well.
Here is one of the “startup opportunities” we’re currently working on:
