Infinite Learner is an original podcast where I interview today’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs & startup leaders, delving inside book recommendations that have influenced & shaped their professional career, and beyond too. All in an easily digestible 30 minutes.
At Mustread we believe that books encourage self-educating, self-improvement, and success. Reading is the best way of vicariously learning.
That’s why the main section of the show is to find out how books helped and inspired entrepreneurs in so many ways in their journey.
P.S: Please note that the first episodes will be in French 🇫🇷 (very sorry for our non-French speaking community).

#9 - Jean de La Rochebrochard, Partner at Kima Ventures - Books that teach great lessons of life
I had the great pleasure of talking with Jean de la Rochebrochard, partner at Kima Ventures, the world's most active fund in terms of deal flow, with about a hundred entrepreneurs backed each year.
Jean has a singular personality in the VC space, not afraid to assume and carry his convictions but above all known for being very supportive for the entrepreneurs he backed.
IN THIS EPISODE:
Jean shares with us two meaningful readings:
- the 1st one deals with the situation of Navy SEAL in war zones in order to teach us how each individual must not only be an actor but above all assume "ownership" for each of his actions within an organization and how to act in situations of extreme risk.
- the 2nd reading is about the extraordinary and so moving memoir of a holocaust survivor, detailing the horrific experiences he had in the Nazi camps, as well as the psychological approach that helped him survive, to teach us that everyone must find their own meaning in life, and reach it.
Please enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
