Journalist Steve Coomber spoke to Pigneur about the new book, customer pain and gain, and the relevance of his work for big corporations, on the “HEC Impact of our Research” platform.

“Developing a new business idea is notoriously difficult. Start-up failure statistics are discouraging – some 90 per cent of all new ventures fail, about 40 per cent of all new products or services cannot find sufficient buyers.
