Entrepreneurs, and those who work at startups, are a special part of the workforce.
They embrace innovation and disruption.They live on the edge, and, at times, chase the latest shiny object. But their willingness to fail and try something new often enable them to make a big difference.
The Vator community is made up of these unique people. To that end, we've changed our user profiles to allow entrepreneurs to express their interests and lessons about entrepreneurship.
These profiles will allow us to highlight an entrepreneur every day.
