Venture Café Rotterdam has started a Book Club! We put a spotlight on books that touch on topics that are close to our hearts and/or support our mission to connect innovators to make things happen. Subjects will include entrepreneurship and management, but can also address societal developments or offer a relevant scientific perspective.

This week, Tony de Bree will introduce the new survival kit for startups "Overlevingsstrategie voor startups. Zo overleef je een crisis in 5 stappen" (Survival strategy for startups. How to survive a crisis in 5 steps). This bestselling survival guide and free tools help small businesses to make a survival plan & survive corona.

The startup survival kit consists of:

  • ¬†A practical survival guide.
  • ¬†5 startup canvasses.
  • ¬†4 startup checklists.
  • ¬†6 video tutorials.¬†

During a crisis like corona, smart business owners change from growth to survival mode. During this session, Tony will show you what the main financial problems of startups & other small businesses are and how to make a survival plan in 5 steps to save your company or to make a new start with a new startup business model and a new online and offline startup revenue model.
