Book 50 lessons for entrepreneurs by Jürgen Ingels
“We learn by doing”, the old adage tells us. And in the case of entrepreneurship, you can take that literally! Becoming a successful entrepreneur involves lots of hard work and learning from your mistakes as you progress. There is no magic formula, but following the right lessons can take you a long way. In 50 lessons for entrepreneurs, Jürgen Ingels reveals the lessons he has learned as a top entrepreneur. He gives concrete, practical tips about how you can take your company to the next level, from your business model to operations; from marketing and sales to human resources; and from the composition of your team to the financial structure of your organization. Using a series of personal anecdotes, Jürgen illustrates his own entrepreneurial story, which did not always go the way he had planned. With this book, he hopes to inspire others, to pass on his passion for entrepreneurship and technology, and to help the budding entrepreneurs of the future to overcome the problems they will inevitably face. JURGEN INGELS is the engine behind various startups and scaleups. He is the founder of the SmartFin fund which finances and supports growing technology companies, and he was the driving force behind Clear2Pay, an entrepreneurial success story. Ingels started Clear2Pay from a drawing on the back of a beer card and grew the company to an international business with 1.200 employees in 20 locations, and sold the company in 2014 for $500,000,000. He is also known from the TV program Leeuwenkuil.
