5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for all entrepeneurs, February 26, 2008
This review is from: Start-Up: What We May Still Learn From Silicon Valley (Paperback)
This is NOT a book about why Silicon Valley is better than everyone else, and how to recreate it in Europe.

This is an in-depth analysis of Silicon Valley's success from historic, cultural, and financial viewpoints that until now has not been clearly and succinctly articulated.

Dr. Lebret is not a high-nosed scholar writing about innovation from a comfy desk in academia. He is in the trenches with the entrepreneurs, helping them get their business ideas clear, helping them get funding, and, most importantly, he supports students and scientists with seed funding to put them on the entrepreneurial path. The knowledge and understanding of the issues that face young entrepreneurs is clearly, and sympathetically, expressed in his writing.

This book is required reading for would-be entrepreneurs, people leading innovation, and policy makers. It is meant for Europeans, Americans, and those in emerging counties too. It will change the way you see entrepreneurs and the ecosystem around them.
