    Silicon Valley

    Peter Ester has been researching the innovative ‘incubator’ Silicon Valley for some years now. In 2014 he published a first book on the subject of 'Start me up in Silicon Valley' together with former lector Arne Maas. In this book they shared the most important lessons of Silicon Valley. The book describes the most important tips for Dutch start-up businesses to increase their chances of success.
