Is Entrepreneurial Success Inherited?

By Carleigh Lowe Tuesday, June 14, 2011

I recently read a very interesting article in Forbes Magazine entitled "Entrepreneurs: The 'Business' Gene," which ponders whether entrepreneurial success is inherited. It features the story of Dylan Lauren, Ralph Lauren's daughter. Take a look at the excerpt below and let us know your thoughts on this subject in the comments.

What accounts for entrepreneurial talent in parents and some of their children--chromosomes or care and feeding? Both? That question may never be resolved with certainty. But in kicking off father-child conversations in eight families, we learned a great deal about characteristics shared among generations. Business is more than a common interest between dads and their kids. It forms an intimate bond that engages ambition, achievement, competition, criticism, fear, failure, reconciliation, growth, renewal. In other words, it reenacts the high drama of family life.
