Food delivery disruptor Just Eat went from making just £36 in its first month to a valuation of £5.5 billion at its IPO. David Buttress, the company’s Co-founder and former CEO, shares his inspiring story of entrepreneurship and growing a business.

“If you can engineer within yourself a desire way beyond what's rational in terms of wanting to succeed, you probably have a fair chance of doing something that is a little bit out of the ordinary. And I think everyone has it in them. It's just whether you can find that internal fire and desire to really push yourself beyond what’s normal. And that's what entrepreneurs do.”
