  5. 5. A Startup is not a Smaller Version of a Large Company Startup ˈstärt-ˌəp - noun 1. A STARTUP IS A TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION IN SEARCH OF A SCALABLE, REPEATABLE AND PROFITABLE BUSINESS MODEL. See also: A scalable startup is designed by intent from day one to become a large company. Scalable startups aim to provide a tremendous return to their founders and investors. Applying rules of established companies to startups is irrelevant, distracting and clearly damaging while growing and managing a startup. { P.I.A. For the past 20 years, the French ecosystem has been focusing on SME resulting in a nonproductive mechanism design to enhance the emergence of massively successful startups. Bad criteria creates the wrong focuses. The Government implements top-down policies and infrastructures that create too many walking deads.Friday, January 11, 13

One is not Born but rather Becomes an Entrepreneur Education through TheFamily shapes the transmission of informal rules at 3 levels: Individual Understand emotionally what it takes to become an entrepreneur Community Learn the culture of the pay-forward and enforce its application Dream Have the right kind of high ambition { Education means learning by doing. There is no one good way to educate. But the means can be improved. }Friday, January 11, 13

  12. 12. The Mechanism Design of Acceleration There is no coworking space in TheFamily. Making hackers work in a noisy, distracting environment is inefficient. We advise them to live where they work as roommates until they can afford the perfect work space. There is no batch in TheFamily program. The YCombinator has been the model for batch- centric accelerators. But this model only works in a positive creation environment such as Silicon Valley. A different ecosystem calls for different adaptation, timelines and levels of support.Friday, January 11, 13
