Super Founders: What Data Reveals About Billion-Dollar Startups

English | May 18th, 2021 | ISBN: 1541768426 | 320 Pages | True EPUB | 7.61 MB

Super Founders uses a data-driven approach to understand what really differentiates billion-dollar startups from the rest-revealing that nearly everything we thought was true about them is false!

Ali Tamaseb has spent thousands of hours manually amassing what may be the largest dataset ever collected on startups, comparing billion-dollar startups with those that failed to become one-30,000 data points on nearly every factor: number of competitors, market size, the founder's age, his or her university's ranking, quality of investors, fundraising time, and many, many more.

And what he found looked far different than expected. Just to mention a few:
Most unicorn founders had no industry experience;
There's no disadvantage to being a solo founder or to being a non-technical CEO;
Less than 15% went through any kind of accelerator program;
Over half had strong competitors when starting-being first to market with an idea does not actually matter.

You will also hear the stories of the early days of billion-dollar startups first-hand. The book includes exclusive interviews with the founders/investors of Zoom, Instacart, PayPal, Nest, Github, Flatiron Health, Kite Pharma, Facebook, Stripe, Airbnb, YouTube, LinkedIn, Lyft, DoorDash, Coinbase, and Square, venture capital investors like Elad Gil, Peter Thiel, Alfred Lin from Sequoia Capital and Keith Rabois of Founders Fund, as well as previously untold stories about the early days of ByteDance (TikTok), WhatsApp, Dropbox, Discord, DiDi, Flipkart, Instagram, Careem, Peloton, and SpaceX.

Packed with counterintuitive insights and inside stories from people who have built massively successful companies, Super Founders is a paradigm-shifting and actionable guide for entrepreneurs, investors, and anyone interested in what makes a startup successful.
