Paper: Hipsters, Hustlers and Hackers

Geïnteresseerd in teamprestaties bij start-ups? Samen met Scott Hutcheson, Purdue University en Sebastian Hamers, Human Insight hebben we praktijkgericht onderzoek gedaan naar hoe start-upteams erin slagen om hun bedrijf te laten groeien en welke teams moeite hebben om iets van de grond te krijgen. Scott en Sebastian hebben hun bevindingen opgeschreven in een paper en willen graag met jou delen wat ze hebben gevonden.

Preview:

“A hipster, a hustler, and a hacker walk into a business incubator.” No, this is not the start of a joke but an actual scenario that plays itself out every day, all over the world. Many individuals dream of becoming the next Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos or some other entrepreneur who has had a great impact on the world.

There is much to emulate. Each of these tycoons has built impressive organisations and their products, services, and solutions to the masses. Theirs might be household names, but standing behind them are teams of people powering their organisations and taking their vision to the next level. Would Apple have been successful without Mr Wozniak? Or Richard Branson without Nik Powell?

So what makes entrepreneurs succeed in their journey to the top? This is a question that a lot of people have been seeking to answer. Research done by CB Insights gathered data from 101 start-ups that failed and looked at the reasons why they failed. They found the following top three reasons are:

  1. Lack of money
  2. No product-market fit
  3. Not the right team members
