WHAT is the driver of success?
Human Nature. A special combination of people. Sounds cliche and maybe simplistic. However it is that combination of talents bound by trust and candour that equips them to persevere against and clarify all challenges that come in their way. The team must be able to refine a fragile start up idea or be able to refresh a mature business idea. Capital can only buy time to perfect an idea and accelerate a growth program. It can't fix a wrong trajectory.
Next we look for management teams who believe in a certain code of conduct. Being of service is core to this conduct. Underpinned by sincere humility. A healthy dose of grit and self awareness round out the fundamental attributes of enduring success.
Always see possibility in people.
