Review: Entrepreneurship: Successfully Launching New Ventures

Entrepreneurship: Successfully Launching New Ventures
Entrepreneurship: Successfully Launching New Ventures by Bruce R. Barringer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Among three different university textbooks on entrepreneurship that I read this one is definitely the best one. I use it most in my teaching tenure. Clear structure and language, logical build-up of chapters and topics, good illustrating case studies and examples of real companies.

It's pity that it is still very much US-focused, although being an international edition.

Sangar - a good customer experience

In general, I don't like shopping. And especially shopping for clothes. But recently I had one very good experience with buying a shirt. I ordered a tailor-made shirt from Sangar, an Estonian company.

Reasonable price, very good service (not an obvious thing in Estonia) and - most importantly - very good result. Now I have got a shirt made by Estonian masters within three weeks from ordering which totally suits me (it is often hard to find well-sitting clothes for a rather tall and rather thin guy like me).

I hope companies like Sangar will develop and grow internationally more and more. Maybe in the the future it will get to the same level where Eton and Stenströms are now?
