What does it truly take to be part of the startup community?

It’s not always an easy question to answer. Entrepreneurs are by no means average or ordinary. Entrepreneurs are dreamers, innovators, and pioneers. They are those who see the problems that exist around them and ask: Does it have to be that way? It’s a mindset of courageous exploration which allows entrepreneurs to live on the edge of what is known — and what is yet to be discovered. …

As technology is swiftly making the world a smaller place, people are beginning to benefit tremendously from learning new languages. The power of doing so opens doors for opportunities and experiences that are truly life-changing.
