The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” – Nolan Bushnell

Being an entrepreneur is one of the most rewarding yet challenging things you can do over the course of a lifetime. Few things in this world are comparable with the thrill of building your own startup, growing you user base and becoming, by some standards, successful.

Everyone at Piktochart is, in one way or another, an entrepreneur. We are innovators who thrill in uncertainty and get excited when we help Piktochart grow. To celebrate that, we’ve decided to make May the Entrepreneurship Month on our blog. We’ll be posting several articles related to:

  • investor pitching
  • startup finance
  • growth and acquiring users
  • culture
  • productivity
  • and much more

Let’s take a quick look at the articles we will be publishing over the course of next month!
