screenshots From Apple to Zecco, we have reported on a huge array of gamechangers during the past few months and have carried exclusive interviews with green investment guru Vinod Khosla, Juno founder Chris Hughes, Foursquare's Dennis Crowley, PayPal and's Max Levchin, Layar co-founder Maarten Lens-Fitzgerald, Y Combinator's Paul Graham and Seedcamp's Saul Klein.

Whether it is Dimitry Kotenko, who is trying to make Siberia into a leading solar powerhouse, or Saad Mohseni, who is piping TV talent shows into houses in Afghanistan, CNBC Business talks to the headline-makers before they make the headlines.

And just as important as unearthing business talent, we identify the next business hotspots. We have looked at the future telecom giants of the emerging markets, the various attempts to clone Silicon Valley, and the most creative business hubs in Europe.

Rounding out each issue of the magazine is the Pursuits section, which informs readers on ways to enjoy their downtime, with hotels, motoring and gadgets reviews and sports, culture and style crib-sheets. With such a focus on innovation, enterprise and investment, delivered in print and online, CNBC Business delivers the link to – wherever you are.
