Will Your Startup Succeed? The Odds Aren’t in Your Favor

Just because you have a great idea, doesn’t mean you’ll succeed.  In fact, only 18% of startups actually succeed, and only a handful are YouTube or Facebook.  Even on your second time around, success is only 2% higher.  The reality is that it isn’t easy to get it right.  And there’s a lot left up to chance.

But don’t feel bad, even veteran entrepreneurs who’ve had a successful IPO, only have a 30% chance of success their next time around.  So go for it!  Remember, nothing happens unless you make it happen.
