Jason Finestone, the leader of the unique dining revolution, Pass The Table, talks to us about the importance of learning from failure and being passionate about your business plans.
This is part of our original series Team Talk, where we sit down and chat with entrepreneurs and hear about their experiences working in teams and how they have overcome situations to work better together.
We first ran into Jason at the June TechTO event where he spoke and did a demo of the Pass The Table app. Jason, Co-founder and President of Pass The Table, brings conversations to life with his passion for food and unbeatable dining experiences.
On Friday, July 9, we journeyed to the Ryerson DMZ, home to some of Toronto’s top tech startups, to hang out with Jason and ask him about his experiences starting his own business.
Watch the interview now!
Jason talks powerfully about entrepreneurship and building a business, and here are some the key takeaways:
- “The basis behind entrepreneurship is failure, and learning from failure.”
- “Passion is the operative word there. If you don’t have it, don’t do it!”
The roller coaster of entrepreneurship may bring you many ups and downs, but it’s your ability to ride the wave, work hard, and fight for something that you are passionate about that will ensure success. When you reach those high points, celebrate them and when you reach those low points, learn from them and use them to help you grow. Along the way, use your passion to help drive your ideas forward, enrich the process, and help you make all of your business decisions.
