A Marketer's Complete Guide to Launching Mobile Apps According to former CEO of AppVee and AndroidApps Alex Ahlund, the average cost to develop a mobile app is $6,453 -- and the cost can skyrocket to as much as $150,000 depending on the complexity of the app. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, the money and resources you dedicate to conceptualizing and developing a truly great mobile app can all be put to waste if you don't orchestrate a proper mobile app launch.

Often the “capture” of workshop sessions is a few photographs and a tonne of share understanding between participants. This all works if you are transitioning straight into a build, and the entire team is present in the workshops, but if the organization is not ready to rock this “loose and fast” method can present some problems. Emerging Companies Perkins Coie, LLP Developing a solid intellectual property ("IP") strategy is essential for emerging companies preparing for market entrance. A sharp understanding and tactical plan for protecting your IP is critical not only before you start, but also during the lifespan of the company.

7 Powerful Public Speaking Tips From One of the Most-Watched TED Talks Speakers You’d never know it, but Simon Sinek is naturally shy and doesn’t like speaking to crowds.

Eight Models of Business Models, & Why They're Important The term Business Model is one that gets thrown around a lot these days. Even though it might sound like a buzzword to you, it’s important to understand what a business model is, and how they are useful. One of the confusing things about the business model concept is that there are a wide variety of models of business models, and it seems as though everyone that talks about them makes up a new one.
