"The Era of Responsible by Design Startups”
"If the success criteria for startups have changed, the reference methods for entrepreneurship have evolved little. The Responsible Entrepreneurship by Design approach aims to address this strong need for support expressed by entrepreneurs to help them, in practice, integrate responsibility from the very construction of their model.”
