If you have a question about this talk, please contact enterprisetuesday.

Successful entrepreneurs are often dismissed as having had a bit of good luck. Entrepreneurs too, are sometimes tempted to ascribe their progress to luck or serendipity. What is the reality of entrepreneurial success or indeed failure? How much can we rely on our own endeavours? How much do we have to wait for external conditions to change and go in our favour? Is it about the luck of being in the right place at the right time? Markets, technologies, social trends, access to funding, finding the first customer but perhaps not where you were looking, are all cases that challenge the rational model for enterprise development.

The guest panellists will debate these issues. Attendees will get the chance to ask questions and interact with the speakers during a Q&A session.
