Cool offices from around the world – would you work for these companies ?
Why do some companies just take off like a rocket and other not ?
This question is answered by some of the world’s best analysts with theory about business procedures and practises, whitepapers about market timing and combinations of personal habits mixed with future visions and 10 000 hours.
