The journey goes on! After one more year running the website IntelligentHQ, a platform dedicated to social business, alternative finance and innovation, we can say that the ride has been immensely rewarding.
For the past three years, we have devoted ourselves to discover what are the most interesting and fast forward projects worldwide that are revolutionizing the landscape of business, by experimenting with novel and positive models of doing business that combine profit with a deep sense of meaning and the pursuit of social good.
We have brought to our readers inspiring stories and information about projects from all corners of the planet, that are transforming the world in a positive and inspiring way, and therefore making it a better place.
We wish all our readers a Merry Christmas with some of IntelligentHQ’s most inspiring quotes:
1.“The road to success is always under construction.” Lily Tomlin

3. “Faith is the bird that feels the light, when the dawn is still dark.” Rabindranath Tagore
4. “Don’t nourish your fears more than you nourish your hopes.” Steve Marabell
