Hosted by Té Revesz
What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? Why is easier for entrepreneurs to thrive in the U.S. than France? What about the UK? Richard Rabbito Managing Director of The Overseas Development and Finance Group (London-Paris-NYC) and Stéphane Rosenwald, CEO of RV Conseil (Paris-Tunis) lay out roadmaps to successful entrepreneurship on each side of the Atlantic. What sets entrepreneurs apart from the rest? Do the characteristics that make for successful entrepreneurs differ depending on which side of the Atlantic you’re on? Is entrepreneurialism rooted in culture? What cultural myths support or suppress entrepreneurism? How can you use them? What role does government policy & practice play? How can you help your company become more entrepreneurial? How can you create a culture of entrepreneurialism? How can you work the university to startup pipeline? Do French entrepreneurs have to go abroad to succeed? Why is it more difficult to find money in Europe? And where can you find it?
