And Kevin O’Leary would know. A star of Dragons’ Den, Kevin started his company in his basement with a tiny $10,000 loan from his mother. In 1999, Kevin sold that same company for a staggering $4.2 billion. Since then, he has successfully founded, bought and sold companies in a variety of industries. Kevin has become a go-to expert in entrepreneurship and business success. He is currently the Chairman of O’Leary Funds, a $1.7 billion investment fund company, and co-hosts the Lang and O’Leary Exchange on CBC News Network. He is also the host of Redemption Inc., a new CBC series that will premiere in January 2012.
