In the introduction of "Entrepreneurship META," author Pierre Bonnet expressed gratitude to CLEF and translator Ngô Tự Lập for their contributions to the success of this publishing project. Bonnet then explained the significance of the term "META," which is an acronym for the four main chapters of the book, forming a framework to accumulate knowledge in various fields, including entrepreneurship. Specifically, M stands for "Motion" - Passion (ADN) and the reason for entrepreneurship; E stands for "Engagement" - actions that cannot be ignored to avoid failure in entrepreneurship; T stands for "Treasury" - financial management rules for entrepreneurial projects; A stands for "Assurance" - a collection of principles to protect businesses at the legal and organizational levels. The French author hoped to provide readers with accumulated knowledge and suggestions for success in the entrepreneurial journey. Additionally, Pierre Bonnet also hoped that investors and incubators would find interesting ideas in the book to enhance their effectiveness in relationships with startup projects.

Following the program, translator Ngô Tự Lập spoke about the process of translating "Entrepreneurship META" into Vietnamese. He emphasized that translation is not only about translating words or meanings but also about capturing the "soul" of the work. For instance, unlike other entrepreneurship books that are often memoirs or academic textbooks far from reality, "Entrepreneurship META" offers experiences and guidance based on both theory and practical experience. Each chapter includes notes and practical advice, allowing readers to learn and apply immediately. Ngô Tự Lập also hoped that the Vietnamese translation would closely reflect the spirit of the original work, providing inspiration and useful knowledge for readers who are starting or have started their entrepreneurial projects.

Pierre Bonnet, a renowned French entrepreneur and a close friend of Vietnam, overcame a challenging childhood to become a successful IT engineer and later an entrepreneurial figure. In the 2010s, Orchestra Networks, a company he co-founded, became a leading global company in the field of big data processing. Orchestra Networks has branches in Vietnam, leading to Pierre Bonnet's collaboration with Ngô Tự Lập when he was the Director of IFI. After transferring the company, Bonnet became an angel investor and a startup and technology consultant. He is the main investor in the Vietnamese company Drinkizz, the first organic energy drink manufacturer globally.

As a successful entrepreneur from humble beginnings, Pierre Bonnet continually reflects on life's purpose and humanity's significant issues. This is evident in "Entrepreneurship META."
