HackFwd Build 0.5 - Mallorca March 2011
We return to touch on the topic of the difference between European and US startups. In his talk at Build 0.5, Michael A. Jackson boils the difference down to speed of execution. While there are kick-ass entrepreneurs on both sides of the Atlantic, there is a need to remind the European entrepreneurs, in the words of Wayne Gretzky, of skating where the puck is going, not where it has been. The difference can be due to attitude, due to financing, or due to paralysis by analysis, and while the problem might have multiple causes, it has one solution. Just do it... faster. Watch Michael's talk for more stories from years of experience.
