How To Tell If You’re An Entrepreneur (Video)

The rise of the entrepreneurial class is an observable economic phenomenon. Whether because of a lingering recession, the explosion of technological innovation, or the hacking philosophy gone mainstream, many of you may find yourselves at a financial crossroads: to startup or not to startup.

You’re aware of the success stories. You know the names of half a dozen Y Combinator startups and the biographies of at least a couple of Peter Thiel’s wiz-kids. But you also know why you’ve hesitated turning that crazy social networking meets GIS meets public bathrooms idea into a reality: 82% of first time entrepreneurs fail.

Minute MBA invites you to release some of that self-doubt by participating in a short rhetorical quiz. Watch the video and gauge the ergs or ounces of your entrepreneurial ambition against four statistical truths of entrepreneurs. And remember that when less than 1% of entrepreneurs come from extremely rich or extremely poor backgrounds, innovation is a demographic that’s made not born.
