Are entrepreneurs born or taught?

Let’s take Canteen co-founder, Dominic Lake, as an example.

Well he did turn a tidy profit at school by re-selling cola cubes to classmates.

But then he also took an MBA at the London Business School.

It’s a question Dom is often asked when he returns to this fine institution, as part of a panel talking about business.

Dom’s answer is this: success is about seizing opportunities and working with the right people.

In our case, we feel like we saw an interesting thing happening – a growing pride in British food – and we acted on it.

And Dom’s tip for any budding entrepreneurs? Have a go. You’ll never know unless you try.

As for failure, the important thing is to learn from it.

Right, there’s the bell; off you go. And don’t forget your homework.
