Emanuel Macron ist Persönlich and er grössten Startup Konferenz in Paris erschienen und seine Unterstützung für Startup erneut angekündigt, darunter:
- Startup Visas
- Ein öffentlicher Venture Fond mit einem Volumen von Euro 10 Mrd., welcher von Bpifrance gemanaged wird
- Steuererleichterungen für Startups
Hier wird etwas bewegt. Von unserem Nachbar können wir etwas abschneiden – anstatt wie hier über fähige oder unfähige Unternehmer zu diskutieren und nach mehr Spätfinanzierung zu rufen. Wir sollten wie in Frankreich den Menschen Mut machen zum gründen und alle Frühunternehmerischen Tätigkeiten versuchen zu vereinfachen. Damit könnten wir die Innovation auch in der Schweiz ankurbeln. Schliesslich war Macrons Votum an die Vorbild Rolle von Startup Unternehmer eindrücklich:
All the entrepreneurs who are here today, I want to give you back your freedom but I also want to make you realize that it is an immense responsibility. The world that we currently live in, the world that I want to lead with you, the world in which France is a leading nation, it is a world that cannot share the same values as the world of yesterday.
I want you to succeed in this world, but I don’t want you to be cynical. I want you to get rich, but you don’t get to be greedy and selfish because our societies don’t accept that anymore.
It won’t happen because of a government or another. It won’t happen because of a new law on capital taxes and so on. It’s your responsibility and you have to keep that in mind.
Why did British people vote for Brexit? Because for years and years, some people thought that everything could happen in the peaceful environment of the City, between quiet billionaires and politicians who were acting in their best interest. At some point, British people woke up and said no — and it was a brutal no.
Why do you think that the American people chose a leader that may not be the one you would have picked? Because he knew how to talk to the middle class. The American establishment looked down on the middle class for years because they started talking exclusively with successful people.
You’ll build tomorrow’s France, Europe and world. And that freedom that I want for you, that democracy of the 21st century, it’s an enormous responsibility. At every step of the way, you have to keep in mind that your success can’t be your personal success. It has to be the success of your company, of all your employees, of your neighbors and even your neighbors at the other side of the world. Today’s world needs to rethink the distribution of wealth that previous generations destroyed. This is your responsibility, it is our responsibility and I want to lead that change.”
