« Merkel: GDR Was an Unjust State ("Unrechtsstaat") | Main | Onkel Wackelflügel and the Candy Bombers »

Just from my small corner of the world: My husband consults for a French high tech startup, and the people are very dedicated. Being French, however, they do not spend 24 hours a day on their work. He also works for startups in the U.S., in Silcon Valley and elsewhere, and most of them fail even though the CEOs and employees work on them all the time. Most startups fail, period.


Yes, most start-ups fail. But in "the Valley" failure is a badge of honor. In Germany, at least, it's something shameful.
