Les succ s du web la fran aise
PriceMinister, Mille Mercis, Vente privée, Deezer, Seloger.com, Pixmania, Free, Viadeo, AssurOne, Criteo... Si nous n’avons pas en France de Google ou d’Apple, il existe néanmoins une réelle forme d’excellence « à la française » sur le web, comme le prouvent ces entreprises et leurs performances. A partir d’entretiens approfondis réalisés avec les fondateurs et dirigeants de ces entreprises, les auteurs analysent les secrets de leurs réussites, les différents modèles économiques du « web à la française » et l’esprit entrepreneurial que l’on trouve en chacun d’entre eux mais qui prend des formes variées. Ils expliquent ainsi quels sont les facteurs clés de succès de ces entreprises, quels sont les facteurs d’échec, comment elles peuvent réussir à s’exporter, quelles sont les conditions spécifiques du marché français et les modes de financement accessibles aux start-up, quelles sont les questions à se poser lorsque l’on veut lancer une start-up Internet.

An unwilling journey into the heart of darkness begins F�rbringer's descent into a sinister, dream-like India, where he is imprisoned in a labyrinthine palace full of dark secrets and is ultimately forced to run for his life.Although filmed three times, Thea von Harbou's mystery-suspense-fantasy is presented here in English for the first time since its original publication in 1918.
