Startupland: How Three Guys Risked Everything to Turn an Idea into a Global Business

The true tale of what it takes to chance all of it and opt for broke.

Conventional knowledge says such a lot startups must be in Silicon Valley, begun via younger engineers round an attractive new concept, and sponsored by means of VC investment. yet as Mikkel Svane unearths in Startupland, the tale of founding Zendesk was once whatever yet conventional.

Founded in a Copenhagen loft by means of 3 thirty-something pals seeking to cut loose from company doldrums, Zendesk Inc. is now one of many most popular company software program businesses, nonetheless swiftly growing to be with shoppers in one hundred fifty international locations. yet its good fortune was once whatever yet predestined.

Startupland is fundamental interpreting for all marketers who have the desire to make their principles the subsequent huge factor. The ebook will encourage and empower you to keep on with your individual dream and create your personal tale.

Advances in Heat Pump-Assisted Drying Technology

Drying of solids is likely one of the most typical, advanced, and energy-intensive commercial approaches. traditional dryers provide constrained possibilities to extend power potency. warmth pump dryers are extra strength and value potent, as they could recycle drying thermal strength and decrease CO2, particulate, and VOC emissions because of drying.
