I heard on NPR one time that men are more likely to run a successful startup than women BUT the ONLY reason is because when their company goes bust, they just try again with another company/idea and if it doesn’t work out, they keep trying again until eventually one of them is successful. It’s just statistics. It said that women are more likely to be hard on themselves when their first attempt doesn’t work out and they take it to mean they aren’t cut out for this so they quit. Men are more likely to try just brush it off and try again. Glad to see you say that “there will be a next time”!
