Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: We Need To Innovate Our Way Out

Posted on Monday, Aug 16th 2010

From Alan Brochstein’s review of Innovation: Need Of The Hour (Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume 4) by Sramana Mitra for his AB Analytical Services blog:

“Don’t worry if you haven’t read any of the three previous volumes, as this latest in the series is a great read in and of itself. Author Sramana Mitra, a veteran of the VC industry and the world of entrepreneurship, once again lets her subjects tell their great stories. In Innovation: Need Of The Hour, Mitra structures the interviews around the central thesis that we have a societal need to innovate our way out of the challenges we face today. She digs deep into the past as well as finding more recent examples of the type of creativity that we can only hope will not be stifled by regulation and taxation. This volume too left me hopeful that we as a society can rise to meet the challenges of the big problems with energy, the environment, healthcare, etc. Hopefully, risk-taking will not be a victim of the Great Recession and Mitra can describe in one of her future works what great companies arose from the ashes.”

And here is a review of Sramana Mitra’s Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume 1 posted on

Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume 1 is an aspiring entrepreneur’s one stop shop for all his queries… especially if you are a newbie (like me), this should be your first step. Sramana Mitra’s lucid yet assertive diction enthralls you and leaves you gasping for more. Her technical prowess and keen sense of business acumen is evident in this book. It makes you dwell upon it, hours after every reading session. I found the second story particularly engaging. All the stories are weaved to perfection and have a seamless link that makes the book stand out and have a lasting impact on you. To put it in a nutshell, this book gave me the much needed head start to plunge into ‘MY’ journey of entrepreneurship.”

Sramana Mitra’s Entrepreneur Journeys, Bootstrapping: Weapon Of Mass Reconstruction, Positioning: How To Test, Validate, and Bring Your Idea To Market and Innovation: Need Of The Hour are all available from Amazon.comEntrepreneur Journeys and Bootstrapping, published by Hachette India, are for sale in bookstores in India.
