The stereotype of the startup founder

My dataset showed that the founders of billion-dollar companies were more likely to have PhDs than be dropouts, many of them had entirely non-technical co-founders, fewer than 15 percent went through any accelerator program, many weren’t solving a personal problem, and very few were first to market.

I wonder how many people don't found a startup simply because they don't match the stereotype.

This is one of the many passages I read in books and articles on a daily basis. They span many disciplines, including art, artificial intelligence, automation, behavioral economics, cloud computing, cognitive psychology, enterprise management, finance, leadership, marketing, neuroscience, startups, and venture capital.

I occasionally add a personal note to them.
