Tools save time for busy Startups and help accelerate their businesses by making them more efficient. It's especially good if the tool is free or reasonably priced. Here at CogniDox we've curated a collection of links to over 450 business tools and organized them into a Mindmap for easy browsing. We'd like to share this with you, in the hope that you will find it as useful as we do.
The tools are sorted according to the Six Abilities framework, which is a new and innovative model of the skills required to form and grow a technology Startup.
You can read about the framework in our slideshow presentation, or you can use the interactive mind map tool. The mindmap will open in a pop-up window. Hold down your mouse button to drag the image around, click on a node to expand or contract it, or click on the arrow links to open a new tab or window for the tool's web site.
The collection has been updated many times since its launch in 2011, but is still evolving. We’ve got lots of ideas for extending it. If you have suggestions for tools you've found useful (please say why), email us at
and we'll do our best to include your recommendation.
