Why small businesses need to embrace technology

Technology could help make and break business. This is especially true for new and small businesses who need every advantage they can get.

Pavlo Phitidis, Founder at Aurik Business Accelerator says that for business that are focused on growth, innovation and going to the next level - technology must always a part of that process.

There are business who are seemingly do reasonable well, who have potential, the individuals are making money running them - but there will come a terrible day when you suddenly turn around look over your shoulder, and when you turn back - your business wont be there any more.
