The right tools can make a huge difference to your ability to run your startup and life. There used to be a time that great software cost more than most entrepreneurs could afford. No more. A highly competitive and innovative market has led to many companies using ‘freemium’ strategies to recruit customers, resulting in a proliferation of fantastic free tools.
This guide contains 50 of the best that we have come across. Whether you are looking for something to help you create amazing presentations, manage your finances and projects or raise your startup’s profile, we’ve got it covered. Some are completely free (often open source) and some are a free ‘lite version’ with a premium paid version available. We also included a few extra paid tools that we came across just because they are so cool and useful and worth every cent (most come with free trials).
Finally, some of the products we use, have used or have tested. Some, our clients, colleagues and friends have recommended. Others are award winning and some just have great reviews. We hope you find this guide useful as we have.
