Founder of US technology firm Marvell, Weili Dai, has been telling the BBC her recipe for start-up success.

She says our chances are enhanced by passion and a supportive network - in her case her parents.

Ms Dai also cites her love of basketball: "It taught me how to be a team player."

She still plays the game and can sometimes be seen shooting hoops on the court outside Marvell's headquarters in California.
