The Centre has developed a reading list of books on entrepreneurship and business topics recommended by our Entrepreneurs in Residence, academics, guest speakers and other experts in our community. The aim is to provide you with interesting, thought-provoking material, to prepare you for entrepreneurial courses and assist you throughout your entrepreneurial journey. Books on the list include Unlocking the Enterpriser Inside: A Book of Why, What and How by Shai Vyakarnam and Neal Hartman; The High-Tech Entrepreneur's Handbook: How to Start and Run a High-Tech Company by Jack Lang; and Bottled for Business: The Less Gassy Guide to Entrepreneurship by Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE DL.
CfEL is able to offer this through collaboration with an online service created by recent graduates Nils Frers and Robert Boland, www.studentreadinglists.com. The service, initiated at Cambridge Judge Business School, makes it as easy as possible to create and access recommended reading material for courses.
Accessing the Reading List
To find the books recommended by CfEL, please visit the Student Reading List website and select the following options:
University: Cambridge University
Department: Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning
Course: Must-Reads on Entrepreneurship
There is no additional cost for the service and books are purchased at the same price as bought from Amazon directly. However, the company receives a commission for every book purchased via Amazon. The aim is to raise money for Aiducation International, a non-profit organisation dedicated to giving students access to education. In particular, the company hopes to raise enough money to sponsor a full four-year scholarship for an underprivileged student in Kenya.
