Myths about successful founders are more prevalent than mosquitos in Minnesota. That's why I asked Ali Tamaseb, the author of Super Founders and parter at DCVC to explain the data. He went through 30,000 data points on all the unicorn companies founded in the last 15 years and all the non-unicorns who raised funding. He then compared and contrasted them. The data is insightful not just for major startups but all founders at any stage. How much does age, education level, number of co-founders, domain expertise, competition, and passion for a problem matter? Perhaps not as much as you think.
