Reading List for Entrepreneurs W47 – Selected

Article

I like to call this post a look inside my brain, but it’s almost a week old already…

Apparently, I’m sharing around 5 articles per day with our team and more than 10 articles per day with myself. But I’m trying to recover from this knowledge addiction and turn collection into creation.

Do you do this as well? Saving articles for later reading? What’s your preferred tool? Pocket, Flipboard or Raindrop? I must confess I end up sending tons of articles to myself for later consumption

As is my obsession these days, I’ve come across a number of awesome community and newsletter related resources. And just to keep things a balanced; music, neuroscience, synthetic media, FinTech and event production.
