Free & Paid Tools I use for my Startup

Here is a list of free and paid tools I use in my startup. I am a open source person so my preference is always to find a tool or utility which does not need money initially and if I like the product or service, I always donate some amount to company or author/creator of the tool. Sometime paid tools are worth spending money as well. Tools play a very important role in running a successful business. It not only saves a lot of time but actually smoothen the process of running any business which eventually increases the productivity. So today I bring a list of product, services, tools or resources which I use in day to day life of running my own startup Rentomo.com * marked names in the list belong to paid subscription.
