News Driving our Momentum:
From One Community Member to Another (Next Gen Team)
The Hidden Patterns of Great Startup Ideas (James Currier)
⭐️The opportunities and challenges of remote work (Robert Logemann)
Our two-cents on Logemann’s article:
“The ability to work from home or a cafe halfway across the world is a modern and tantalizing benefit, yet the power of having a team together remains undeniable. Crafting a circle of safety within a creative environment requires working across from one another. Cooperation occurs during meetings without technology. Not only does morale rise in-person, but productivity does as well: we are constantly feeding off the energy around us, surrounded by those hustling to reach our collective goal.” – Rachel G.
