Inc. Magazine published some interesting data summarized as:
1. Companies started by entrepreneurs in their 20s are more likely to close.
2. Companies founded by Asian leaders have a significantly higher rate of survival
3. The amount of startup capital doesn’t signiicantly alter a company’s chance of survival.
4. Patents or Copyrights have little impact on startup survival or closure rates.
Note that the data didn’t define what a ‘survival’ outcome meant, only that a company was merged/acquired or still ongoing.
