Are Entrepreneurs Born Or Made? Part II | #MyPost on @VenturesAfrica

“In fact, researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: ten thousand hours.” – Malcolm Gladwell

VENTURES AFRICA – This post is a sequel to an article – Are Entrepreneurs Born or Made? – which generated quite a buzz mostly due to the nature/nurture question it posed. Notable among the feedback was one from a Nigerian entrepreneur, Tayo Oviosu, Founder/CEO of Paga. According to him, I hadn’t taken a stance in the article, thus this sequel will do the needful. Dans mon avis, entrepreneurs may be born, but they would have to nurture their entrepreneurial traits to be truly successful a la Johann Rupert, Bill Gates, etc.

The above is an excerpt from my post on titled “Are Entrepreneurs Born Or Made? Part II”. The post was published over the weekend and I had to share with you all today. Click here to read full post…
