The presentation will cover applications and online tools — such as Wave Accounting (www.waveaccounting.com), 99designs (www.99designs.com), Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com) and Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org/) — that can save business owners time, streamline their operations and boost their bottom lines.
