Startup Insider: What Makes a Bad Founder

Startup Insider: What Makes a Bad Founder
By Early Investing
Date November 1, 2021

At First Stage Investor, we spend a lot of time talking about founders. We usually focus on what makes a good founder — the qualities that investors should look for before they sink money into a startup. 

But since we just celebrated Halloween, we’re interested in exploring a scarier topic: what makes a bad founder.

The Founder Institute has done a lot of research on this topic. So in today’s episode of Startup Insider, Vin Narayanan and Andy Gordon dive into the institute’s findings on narcissism, dishonesty and other ghastly founder qualities. (If Elon Musk read this list, he would probably take it pretty personally.)


Thanks for watching!
