David Fox with LaunchPad book collection

Looking for some good reads over winter break? The Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars, part of SU Libraries, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its award-winning innovation and entrepreneurship book collection.  One of the library’s most popular and widely used collections, it is unique in that it was crowdsourced by the university community, with recommendations from Syracuse’s innovation ecosystem.

Titles range from memoirs and bios of famous entrepreneurs, to books on topics such as creativity, design thinking, digital marketing and branding, startup creation, storyscaping and pitching, how to develop a value proposition and understand venture capital, and solving wicked problems.  The books cover techniques such as lean startup, as well as big trends and social forces that are shaping the world, and include some classic tomes and well as a few funky inspirational light reads.
