    Book details

In European Founders at Work, several of the top European startup founders are interviewed to explain their respective paths to building a successful company. It builds on the same format :as the original Founders at Work, but :showcases the differences between building a successful company in Europe versus the U.S.

All interviews are :presented in a way that will help readers understand :whether the founders had a local or a global view, how they competed on the global scale, if and how they got funding and their main challenges and opportunities. The companies chosen to be interviewed are a mix of unique worldwide ventures: European-only ventures and even a few copycats of :already-proven concepts. :As such, it :provides a balanced view on the European scene. This mix also includes companies that started in Europe and moved to the U.S., companies who went IPO in their country of origin, companies with European :venture capital :backing, and companies that bootstrapped their way to success.

Foreword by Saul Klein, Founder of LOVEFiLM and The Accelerator Group.
