I received an email a few minutes ago from Lowell Bowie, one of our Cincinnati SCORE counselors. The email included a PDF file entitled “The Anatomy of an Entrepreneur”. It was written by Vivek Wadhwa, Raj Aggarwal, Krisztina “Z” Holly and Alex Salkever.

I have to admit I enjoyed the read. If you click <here> you’ll enjoy reading the article.

We asked company founders to rank the importance of a series of factors on the success of their mostrecent startups and to tell us what other factors were important.

  • 96 percent ranked prior work experience as an important success factor; 58 percent ranked this as extremely important.
  • 88 percent said that learning from previous successes, and 78 percent said that learning from previous failures, played an important role in their present successes. 40 percent said that lessons from failures were extremely important (the factor rating second-highest as “extremely important”).
  • 82 percent said their management team was important to their success. 35 percent said this was extremely important.
  • 73 percent said that good fortune was an important factor in their success. 22 percent ranked this as extremely important.
