Sounds like a criminal title, doesn’t it?

Serial Entrepreneurs are a special breed of human. Instead of starting a company just once–they love the thrill of starting a business, selling it off, and moving on to the next big thing.

With each new venture, they build experience. As they gain this experience, they gain insights and wisdom about the formation of businesses that allows them to take greater risks than what might be afforded to someone else. The opportunity to take greater risks makes for the opportunity to have greater success.

But not all of the ventures of serial entrepreneurs are successful, and according to K Ganesh, that’s not the point.

Sometimes the businesses work, other times they don’t, but if you ask him, the experience was worth it every time.
