Dual channel: traditionnal & digital Although I did enjoy to my degree the extent of entrepreneurship in the setting up of creativity and ideas, I have to point out that we focused a lot on VCs. On this side, we are not in the US or any look alike countires, well yes, Europe s got its specifities believe it or not, strength and weaknesses, we ve been repeated a lot that there is no a comparable place for investments within Europe. I still don t buy that entrepreneurship is less valued and more difficult in europe compared to the US, sustainability and control feedbacks are better valued here and yes we start to have VC and other investments, but one entrepreneurship person should understand that you have to adapt to the environment you are in. Europe is far more administrative in a good and a bad sense, and during this course i ve slightly been given valuable insights on these view, understanding the protocol behind chamber of commerce to create your company would be a first requirement.
