Startup Christmas: Holiday Gift Suggestions

Thanks to corporate policies that limit gift giving, we have had to find a way to provide meaningful holiday gifts to our clients and colleagues while at the same time staying within spending guidelines.

For board presentations, what CEO (or CFO) would not enjoy a Dolphin laser pointer? You can adjust it so that the laser points a straight beam of light at your powerpoint or a heart , star or octopus shape! Perfect for accentuating your positive cash flow!

Happy Holidays.
