HBR article compares funding success of “builder” vs. “disrupter” start-ups

Harvard Business ReviewI suspect many of our readers are at least occasional readers of the Harvard Business Review. If you’re looking for funding, you might want to read this article which notes that “builder-led start-ups were nearly 10 times more common than disrupter-led ones, (yet) ‘disrupter’ start-ups received 1.7 times funding, on average, than ‘builder’ start-ups. In fact, the degree to which a start-up team valued disruption (which we based on its average composition of ‘disrupter’ vs. ‘builder’ team members) significantly predicted the amount of funds that the start-up raised.”
