One of the greatest things about the entrepreneurial landscape is that it’s always changing: new startups are sprouting globally, companies are constantly acquired or merging, and the tech entrepreneurs that pop out of Silicon Valley keep getting younger and younger. It’s exciting to wake up in the morning, turn on the computer and read about the latest business trends, industry events and noteworthy entrepreneurs.
But with meetings all day and networking events on weekends, it’s difficult for any small business owner to keep up with the ever changing information. However, that’s still not a valid excuse — there’s an app for that, of course.

Run an early-stage company? We're inviting 250 to exhibit at TNW Conference and pitch on stage!
I asked a panel of successful young entrepreneurs the following question:
What content apps do you use to get the best startup, tech and industry news on the go?
Here are eight mobile options that will deliver the business headlines you need to read — right to your fingertips:
1. Flipboard Is Fantastic
“Flipboard is probably one of the most frequently used apps on my mobile devices. By aggregating multiple blogs and presenting content in a timeline format, I’m able to easily keep up with the best startup and tech news. Flipboard has predefined “Technology” and “Business” channels which are fantastic, but the app also makes it easy to add other news sources.”
Read about how Flipboard may soon have more downloads in China than the US.
2. Feeddler Feeds Daily
“Feeddler allows me to read all my Google Reader feeds on my iPhone and syncs with all my other devices. It’s the best way to stay on top of startup and tech news blogs that I follow.”
3. Stick With Twitter
“I am on the Twitter app constantly for the best startup and technology news on mobile. If you follow the right lists and industry leaders, you’ll get all the news you need to stay current in an efficient way.”

7. Wheres’s Your Pulse?
“I have been promoting Pulse’s News app to friends and family because it is a great mobile news aggregator that makes it easy to stay on top of all the news you want — regardless of your interests and industry. Particularly great for multidisciplinary entrepreneurs.”
