Even if there is no apparent link to “Start-Up”, let me mention that Pierre Cormon is the author of a marvellous book…

“Seit mehr als 20 Jahren befasst sich Hervé Lebret mit Technologie. Zuerst als Wissenschaftler, später dann bei einer Risikokapitalfirma. Das Fazit seiner Erfahrung lässt sich nun in seinem Buch: “Start-up” nachlesen. Er schildert die Unternehmerszene in Europa und den USA und kommt zum Schluss, dass es in Europa letztlich an ambitionierten Menschen fehlt. Um das zu ändern, regt Lebret unter anderem an, Unternehmer schon in Schulklassen zu schicken, um die Schüler für Technologie und Unternehmertum zu begeistern.

Last but not least

“Your book is a tour de force and covers many of the issues I get involved in discussions about particularly trying to compare Silicon Valley with Cambridge and anywhere else. You have used your intimate knowledge of many of the cast of players to produce a highly readable and informative book. I believe that what you have achieved is to weave valuable and hard to find data into a story which is both fascinating to read and fills many gaps in people’s knowledge and understanding.” Charles Cotton, ex-CEO of Virata and non-executive director of the Library House (Cambridge, UK)

“I was sad it was over. It stirred up the same emotions as reading Peter Drucker or Guy Kawasaki. This is a must read for anyone interested in high tech start-ups and entrepreneurship” Andre Mercanzini, EPFL PhD and BSc, Uni. of Toronto

“The subject of the book “start-up” is of high interest for entrepreneurs and policy makers and of special interest for all universities; the concrete analyses (of a Stanford lab for example) are original and insightful. It should become a standard for courses in high-tech entrepreneurship.” Martin Vetterli, Professor EPFL, Adjunct Professor, UC Berkeley

“It’s great! Your writing style is great and it’s an easy read.” Katharine Ku, Head of Office of Technology Licensing, Stanford University

“In 11 chapters, former researcher and venture capitalist and current innovation fund manager at EPFL (CH), Hervé Lebret explores the phenomena behind the ecosystem which created the success of Silicon Valley and points to the reasons why Europe has not managed to do the same. This is a book with wide appeal and a must for innovation specialists and high-tech entrepreneurs.” Technology Innovation International (www.tii.org) – Luxembourg

“I have become a fan. Now I can put a name on my motivations: the “Have Fun” that we do not have in Europe, i.e. enjoying hard work because you develop your idea and not wishing to have another and better job elsewhere” Fabien, student, Paris area
