Within the pages of the 6th issue of Rank & File, tools become more than devices of material matters, and self-reflection —beyond enlightenment for our own gain.
Combining the profound with the practical, we explore a balanced approach for using the tools of our trade. For without purpose put rightly into action, we will not achieve an impact at all.
A focused, human and logical entrepreneurial approach to raising capital from Keith Ippel of Spring – The Global Startup School for Better Businesses.
