    Default Magazines: Entrepreneur vs. Inc.?

    I get both of these magazines.

    Entrepreneur seems geared at start-ups who are going to be small to medium businesses.

    Inc. seems to be more aimed at people who are starting companies that are more truly "corporate" and intend to grow large.

    I like both but I prefer Inc. I think.....comments? Any other magazines people like?

    I've not read Entrepreneur except on the web site. The site seems to provide good information and good tips. I have subscribed to Inc. in the past. I have to agree that it seems a bit more "corporate" but there is good information to be found there.

    I also liked Fast Company quite well. I think it is owned and published by the same company that publishes Inc.

    I don't read either regularly, but your assessment sounds right.

    I also read Fast Company. Most of the other magazines I read are more specific to web design and seo.

    I prefer Inc over Entrepreneur. I just seem to get more out of it. I also like eCommerce and Internet Retailer magazines. They tend to talk about the "big guys" but it always sparks some ideas.

    I have not read either, While i think they are available in Australia, i have not really looked, the main ones that read are BRW (Business Review Weekly) It is Australian and more geared at corporate but it always has some good idea sparking articles.

    There was also a good one that i used to buy called Anthill (yeah i know strange name for business related magazine) It took a different and i thought better approach to discussing business, more like a one on one type approach. I found it really easy to read and some good articles but i guess a lot of others didn't because it does not seem to be available any more.

    I used to read Fortune, but lately I've been finding it less and less appealing. Think I'll start looking at Inc.

    There is a Fortune Small Business magazine that is pretty good.

    I like Entrepreneur, but haven't read Inc to judge it. Fortune and Fast Company are also great magazines that I enjoy reading as well.

    Then I have my professional subscriptions... Those are excellent if you know what they're talking about!

    I think my choice will be fast company I like their tips and what the write about more than the other magazines listed. Inc seems to be just like what billr said about geared to corporate business which is not where i'm going with my company now. so i rather read about tips and such that fast company offers.

    My favorite article in Fortune Magazine is by Stanley Bing. His article is always on the last page, and it's always something witty. That tends to be the first article I read!
