Reading List «Entrepreneurship

read books

There is a vast number of books that you could potentially read to get into the topic of entrepreneurship. Here, we are recommending a few that we think are important for the future way organisations will work. The list is a excerpt of the books that the Coaches have read in the past years to help them understand principles and ideas of good collaboration and good entrepreneurial practice. They come from all kinds of sources

We will also bring them to the Swiss Talent Forum so you can look at them there (on an ipad) to see if you are interested in reading them later. Most of the recommendations below also come accompanied by a video you can watch to get the basics from the book.
