Video interview: innovation and funding in Europe
We had the great pleasure to chat with Julie Meyer, one of the leading champions for entrepreneurship in Europe, at this year’s Microsoft BizSpark Summit. Julie talked to us about the business ideas that get traction with investors, gave us some tips and tricks on successful entrepreneurship, and the role of cloud computing in driving business and economic growth in Europe. Julie introduced the concept of “ecosystem economics”, based on disruptive business models where successful companies do not just create great products or services but also revolutionise business models of the ecosystem.
In case you aren’t already familiar with Julie, here’s a quick biography. With over 20 years investment and advisory experience helping start-up businesses, Julie Meyer is the founder and CEO of Ariadne Capital, Managing Partner of the Ariadne Capital Entrepreneurs (ACE) Fund, founder of Entrepreneur Country, co-founder of First Tuesday, dragon on BBC's Online Dragons Den and weekly columnist in London's City AM.
