The European startup model

Cedric O, French junior minister:

“Europe has an economic opportunity, as the US economy isn’t as good as it used to be, and the European model is attractive. Therefore, we need to create the right environment and framework to nurture our startups."

Idle observation: there is no European model and there never will be one. If there were, that would involve a blueprint, alternative to build cool shit and apply to YC.

Besides, Europe is a pot of almost 30 cultures and ways of doing business. French are doing it different than Spanish, who are doing it different than Germans or Swedes.

Brexit ain’t making it easier either, since London is the place to go to take people’s temperature, pre-applying to YC.

PS. “the US economy isn’t as good as it used to be” - the US economy is in better shape than the EU’s.
