Essential PDF Requirements for Learning

Why do you need to know about the essential PDF requirements for learning? COVID-19 is affecting most major institutions and causing economic and supply chain upheaval. Almost every planned gathering has been cancelled or postponed to promote social distancing. The education industry is facing similar disruption. Many colleges are extending spring break, delaying classes, or cancelling the semester.

Entrepreneurs and Intrapreneurs: Visionary Leaders that Translate Ideas into Reality

November is one of our favorite times of the year at Kdan. It’s a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship, that culminates with #globalentrepreneurshipweek from Monday the 18th to Friday the 22nd. 

Our U.S. Team had a unique opportunity to partner with two organizations that are dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship, the Juniata Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (JCEL) and Startup Alleghenies, to host a mini-series of events this month that share experiences and start conversations about starting a business. It was useful to learn about some top LLC companies and best LLC service that will help with starting a business as well.

One of the big ideas discussed in both events is that you don’t have to be self-employed to be considered “entrepreneurial.” Intrapreneurs, or entrepreneurial people within an organization, are valuable assets to any team. We want to share some highlights from the two sessions and how these concepts relate to your work, whether it’s for your own company or the one you’re working for!  Continue reading “Entrepreneurs and Intrapreneurs: Visionary Leaders that Translate Ideas into Reality”
