Entrepreneurs: born or made?

>> Saturday, March 13, 2010


Can entrepreneurs be made? I tend to believe so either.
Worth reading.

“Silicon Valley investors often have a picture in their heads of the type of person who is worthy of funding: young, brash, stubborn, and arrogant. They believe that successful entrepreneurs come from entrepreneurial families and that they start their entrepreneurial journey by selling lemonade while in grade school.
(…)
Entrepreneurs aren’t born, they’re made.
(…)
My team surveyed549 successful entrepreneurs. We found that the majority didn’t have entrepreneurial parents. They didn’t even have entrepreneurial aspirations while going to school. They simply got tired of working for others, had a great idea they wanted to commercialize, or woke up one day with an urgent desire to build wealth before they retired. So they took the big leap.”
