I was in Paris last month for the launch of the French version of Guy Kawasaki’s Enchantment (“Enchantement“) at one of the great business schools over there, ESCP Europe. The following day, I met with fantastic entrepreneurs at Le Camping, a six-month accelerator program located inside the Palais Brongniart. I had a conversation on the steps on the beautiful buiding with the former CEO of Publicis-Etoile and co-founder of Keljob, Jacques Birol. Jacques also teaches at HEC, and has written an excellent book in French 52 Conseils éternels pour entreprendre published by Diateino (as is “Enchantement”). The conversation addresses five topics in two minutes:
- Where should you start your company?
- How do you build a team?
- What does it take to become an entrepreneur?
- What is a shadow CEO?
- Is there any age to start a company?
