about

Entrepreneurs of the 21st century use technology to build sustainable businesses, which not only are profitable but also have positive impact on the society and the environment. That's why we want to help you find the best available software tools to reduce your costs, improve your productivity, facilitate communication, and foster collaboration.

​​We're a community of individuals who believe in the power of entrepreneurship and innovation to make the world a better place. We encourage you to help each other make the right choice by sharing your own reviews and recommendations...So we can all make a difference.

discovery

The cliché runs that there's an app for everything. And it may well be true. Next time you are struggling with something, come here and look around. The chances are that some smart guy or girl came up with a simple solution to your big problem.

selection

More choice is not always better. You most probably don't need twenty great apps for accounting. You need just one useful and inexpensive piece of software that's easy to use. So check reviews, or compare related ratings.

growth

No dream is too big, no dreamer is too small. Whether you're a university student, busy mom, startup founder, or corporate professional, launching your own business is pretty brave. And scary. Let the tools you find here make it a bit easier for you.

are you looking for a tool?

search apps

Individual categories feature relevant apps, which you can sort by several criteria (highest ranking, newly added, cheapest etc.). You can also add tools to your own lists (I use this, Check later etc.), which will be saved in your profile.

view ratings

Tools are rated in four aspects. The numbers (running from 0 to 10) will tell you how useful, easy to use, well-designed, and affordable each individual app is. To see the overall ranking, click on the specific tool to see its page with all the important information.

read reviews

Each user has an option to share his unique experience. If you come across a review that is particularly helpful and thorough, please click "like" to make it more visible to others.

create your lists

Share your favorite tools with others by adding them to your "I use this" list. Or add interesting tools to "Check later" list while browsing. Actually, you can create as many lists as you like and inspire other fellow entrepreneurs.

subscribe to a weekly newsletter

Once per week, we will deliver to your inbox a sleek newsletter featuring a few business tools that are worth your attention.

follow the blog

Subscribe to our Medium publication here: entrepreneurs.maqtoob.com and follow stories, posts, essays, and articles of other inspiring entrepreneurs.

do you know a good tool?

suggest an app

Most pages of this website include a "submit a tool" button (the big blue one at the top right corner). If your favorite tool isn't included yet (use search box to find out), send us its URL please. We will check your recommendation as soon as possible.

provide rating

Click on the "Rate" button, and use our interactive widget to rate your experience. The scale goes from 0 to 10. If you reconsider later on, it's possible to change the points (or any of the submitted reviews) on your user page.

write a review

If you've got experience with some of the apps, you can add your own reviews. Help others with their choice and try to answer some of these questions: What do you love about this tool? Is there anything you struggled with? Which features do you find particularly useful? How is this tool different from others?

share on social media

You can tweet about points you gave to a tool. If its creators published their Twitter account here, the message will include @ handle, so they can get notified. If you want to give a shout out to a specific tool, you will find the sharing button in the lower right corner of its homepage image.

did you create a cool tool?

submit an app

It's free to be listed here (premium listing is available for free while we're in beta). However, we aim to keep the high quality of the published tools, and at the moment we approve less than 5% submissions. In general, you should submit tools that are useful, easy to use, well designed, and affordable for entrepreneurs, freelancers, or small business owners. We don't include apps that are pre-launch.

display images

There's no better way to hook your future users than by showing them what your app looks like straight away. By default, apps listed in all the categories feature homepage screenshot. If you opt for premium listing, you can upload up to 10 images to be viewed through a slider on your tool page, including your unique logo. You will be able to remove or change them anytime as your product develops.

show features

Draw attention by presenting your most notable features and benefits. Your tool page can include up to three tabs (about, features, pricing) with plenty of space to showcase your product in its best light.

include video

Many users prefer watching a video to reading a lengthy text. Include your product or instructional video to the slider on your tool page to make your potential clients curious about your app.

collect feedback

Benefit from the ratings and reviews your users provide. Learn what they love, or where there's room for improvement. You can also directly reply to their comments to say thanks or assist them if they experience any issues.

offer discount

On your user page, you can edit the tools you submitted or claimed. There you can include a promo code for your fans and our registered users, including its description and expiration date.
