George Lucas and Walt Disney 

Jacqueline Hundt's insight:

After Lucas won first prize at the 1967-68 National Student Film Festival, he won a scholarship from Warner Brothers to observe the making of Finian’s Rainbow by Francis Ford Coppola. After making the award winning THX-1183, Lucas and Coppola went separate ways and Lucas started his own company Lucasfilm Ltd. 1971 at the age 27. On the otherhand Walt Disney stuggled a little more in trying to get his companey started. Disney started a company called Laugh-O-Gram that wound up bankrupt. After the bankruptcy he moved to California and got a studio there and that is where in 1923 at the age of 22 Walt Dinsey and his brother Roy started Disney Bros. Studio.

Although George Lucas' didn't struggle as much as Walt Disney in beginning his business both entreprenuers know what it is like to work very hard for something. Disney tried very hard to start a business that would last and Lucas tried very hard to win the film festival for the scholarship.

Jacqueline Hundt's insight:

Both entrepreneurs have characteristics that include perseverance, innovation, and hard-working. Both men created businesses that benefited society in the entertainmment industry. In order to found a successful business a entrepreneur needs the capitol and also the drive to start a company, something that was necessary for both of these men in their day and a quailities they both possesed.
