The social contract has changed for ever: whether between government and individual capitalists, start-ups and corporates, or men and women. Many young people want to work for themselves. Feminine strength in the workplace, both in men and women, is in the ascendancy. Government must justify its role within society. Digital and software is replacing manufacturing as the dominant industrial paradigm. Corporates with their cash reserves will be the new venture capitalists.

In Welcome to Entrepreneur Country, Julie Meyer, who has worked closely with many of the biggest technology entrepreneurs over the past fifteen years, explains how society is re-organising itself. She offers a guide to Entrepreneur Country and shows how everyone can embrace the change. Moreover, she shares her own experiences, as well as those gleaned from working alongside some of the world's biggest success stories in the technology world.

In this fascinating new book, every entrepreneur and business owner, however large or small, will recognise their own journey and learn how the digital future will affect them.
