Event description
Ever wondered how to create value in this world. Maybe this book and this session will bring you new and refreshing ideas!?

About this Event

At EBBC Leuven, our goal is to give people who are serious about their career, personal life and self-development a platform to activate what they read and exchange thoughts with other driven people.

We look forward to seeing you at the monthly interactive EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) session in Leuven.

Our first session - OPENING NIGHT - is centered around "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel. Expect an interesting, introspective and practical session!

We activate (y)our Knowledge!

DISCLAIMER: Author of the book will not be present. This is by and for the EBBC community and other curious minds. (Other EBBC Leuven sessions can invite authors,...)

If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets.

The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things.

Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself.

Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.

Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.

We encourage you to read the book (and/or a summary, youtube videos, podcasts, ...) beforehand. While it is not a requirement, it does make the sessions more interesting and valuable for you as well as the others.

We are looking forward meeting you at our opening night!

Due to the crisis this is now an ONLINE EVENT! Looking forward meeting you in the flesh, next edition!

Kind regards,
