Lisa, founder of the award-winning Sweet Mandarin restaurant in Manchester and author of bestselling Chinese recipe books, initially secured investment for her business, which she founded with her sisters, on BBC’s Dragon’s Den. Sweet Mandarin went on to win Gordon Ramsey’s Best Local Chinese Restaurant and she was awarded an MBE in 2014 in recognition of her services to food and drinks..
The advice Lisa would give to anyone thinking of starting their own business is the same she was given when she first took the leap into enterprise: “Never give up; to believe in yourself is very important. You can be knocked down in business, and it is very disheartening, but nothing’s impossible, just keep going!” She acknowledges her own good fortune in starting her business, having founded it in partnership with her sisters, meaning she benefited from a strong family support network. Besides her big funding break in Dragon’s Den, she credits Hakkasan and Wagamama founder Alan Yau as one of the mentors who inspired her to believe in herself and her business venture.
