    One thought on “European Founders at Work”

    1. European Founders at Work is a very interesting book. It is the perfect complement to Founders at Work, particularly for the European dimension. One comment though, I noticed 8 UK projects out of a little more than 20 and these 20 are mostly Software or Internet. More diversity may have been great. This being said, the lessons are great! Here are some (and you will learn much more by reading the book entirely!)About the US Market (for Europeans)"I think that Europe has a lot of credibility in ce [...]

    2. The bad: sometimes not as deep or thoughtful in the questions asked - sometimes seems like a watered down version of the original Founders at Work.The good: it's an interesting perspective that we don't gain with the original American interviews.

    3. Very good tales about different founders from Europe. Lots of interesting details and subtleties of starting company in Europe and US. Must read for all European entrepreneurs who is interesting in US market, in start-up community in general!If you're not ashamed of your product when you launch it, you launched it too late /Rade Hoffman, founder of Linkedin/Launch fast! Fail fast if it doesn't work!

    4. Very inspirational book. The fact that it's written in form of interviews make it alive and makes you step into the founders' shoes.

    5. Offers a lot of practical insight. The interview form is unfortunate at times, but it has the added advantage of staying true to the words of the founders.
