WSJ: The Entrepreneur’s DNA

Source: WSJ, Feb 2013

On fostering entrepreneurship: The data would say about one-third of our creative capacity is DNA. The other two-thirds is the world we grow up in and work in. So there are things I can do to foster it in children.

One of the biggest gifts we can give our children is the opportunity to live in a different country. That will give them an opportunity to see things differently and create like nobody else can.

Every innovator we interviewed, almost without exception, had adults in their lives who paid attention to these skills when they were growing up, and it made all the difference.
