Meet Joseph Doucet. He’s been with ENTRE since April 2021 and has gone through many of our courses and programs already.

He loves that he has people holding him accountable for getting things done and has experienced a huge uplift in his overall positive attitude.

Super Founders: What Data Reveals About Billion-Dollar Startups
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2021
Taking a data-first approach to understanding what drives successful start-ups, and importantly de-bunking a lot of myths, is essential to know. Ali has delivered an extremely well researched and well-written book that was a pleasure to read.

A great read not based on hunches but actual data Ali culled from the startup world. From education, background, chance of success. A must read for anyone interested in startups or changing the world.

If this book doesn’t give you all the insight you need to be a well informed founder then you’re naturally stupid. Thanks.
Amazing read! Awesome visuals and charts for deeper insight.
Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2021
The book really dives into what makes a great company, and founder. One of my favorite hardcover reads of 2021.
Amazing insights! Magic only happens with super founders’ relentlessness.

concise, data-driven insights that calibrates utility of prevalent "advice"
Reviewed in the United States on May 21, 2021
In a very pithy, data-driven approach, Tamaseb provides very valuable observations on almost all prevalent "typical" advise dispensed for entrepreneurs - across all stages of a start-ups life (and demise). One word of caution, though - you are likely to gain more from this book if you are active in the start-up space in any capacity - founder/employee/advisor/investor.
In the first part, the author addresses issues related to the age, educational background, prior experience (corporate and start-up) and its impact (if any) on a start-up's probability of success. (Almost all advise I have received in these topics turn out to be questionable). In the second part, the focus shifts to ideation, product-market fit, decisions on pivots (excellent chapter, worth reading this book just for this short chapter), and differentiation. A start-up evaluating the right product-market fit and/or deciding on adjacencies or risk management strategies will benefit significantly from this discussion. The third part's focus on fund raising and external factors that impact ability to raise also provides a very valuable checklist for anyone trying to raise funds - seed or growth stage.
In each part, a pithy and well-focused chapter addresses exactly one topic without any stories for entertainment. Each chapter is mostly structured around one core myth/advise/hypothesis - a data analysis (retrospective, simple descriptive statistics) - and a set of observations along with some practical advise on that topic. The "interview" in each chapter is actually a very focused narrative by a successful founder/investor that reinforces the key message in the chapter (no extraneous stories about personalities and drama).
Overall, this book, along with a recent Eisenmann book (Why Start Ups Fail), will provide any entrepreneur or one aspiring to be one, a practical checklist to manage the experience and more importantly inform a reader on what advise or myth to dismiss.

Great book for an entrepreneur who’s starting her new journey. Excellent book for founders in the growth stage. Meaningful insights from the most successful businesses around the world. Good storytelling. Easy to read and listen to.
Update: I could not stop listening to this book till I finish. 90% of my Amazon purchases are books. So far, this is one of the best, if not best. The author also included interviews from the most influential venture capitalists like Peter Thiel, how they evaluate startups and entrepreneurs from a VC perspective.
One thing I can’t appreciate enough is how less “sophisticated” this book is. The entire book is easy to read, with no unnecessary technical jargon to look “smart.” To the point, and great storytelling.
I made many mistakes in the past few years running my business. I wish I had the opportunity to learn the things in this book earlier.

Very happy I'm reading this early on in my PhD/Tech Entrepreneur journey
Reviewed in the United States on July 17, 2021
This was exactly what I was looking for! The author does his due diligence and comprises precisely what you want. Enumerates all of the qualities that would result in one being a Founder. Though he does say past performance doesn't predict future success. However for me at least, I'm willing to take that risk.
The author gives an overview of the market threats and type of funding each of these startups had.
A lot of his data comes up with trendless results. My inference is that this is because every founder and company will have a unique make up and some associated biases. So it makes sense that for some founders starting at a young age afforded them a billion dollar company but not so much for others. It just depends on the unique circumstance and maximizing their strengths, privileges', etc. Obviously if someone's an extreme introvert, they emigrated from another country and don't have family , and they hardly participated in college., obviously they're more positions to be a solo founder.
I believe the author wants us to double down on our strengths then focus our resources on other things like creating the technical expertise you might need, or merely courting the attention of the right VCs.
Valuable lessons for anyone interested in working in venture capital backed firms
Reviewed in the United States on June 17, 2021
I found the book to be an incredibly worthwhile read. As an investor in venture capital funds and companies, it provided some interesting data to consider when meeting with companies. For entrepreneurs, sections of the book will help explain your goals and talk to venture investors more effectively. For those considering joining a VC backed firm, the book provides some good insights to think about in terms of what milestones have been achieved and what will be required for the company to make it to the next stage. The writing was entertaining and understandable. I sent a copy to my son in an engineering undergrad program as well, because he and all of his friends are interested in venture capital but really know nothing about it. If they actually read it, this book will provide a huge boost to their understanding of the market!

A great read that challenges the startups myth.
Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2021
A good read. Well organized, backed up with data, and several anecdotes from the founders of companies which add additional color.
This books dispels the myth of the 20 year old college dropout starting a 'mega' business and shows that there is no one path to building a large company. It has a ton of actionable insights, is concise and direct in it organization without a lot of fluff.
Worth the read if you are a startup founder.
Super Founders utilizes an algorithm based on data to determine what sets billion-dollar start-ups apart from other start-ups - and reveals that almost everything we believed was accurate about them is not!
Ali Tamaseb has spent thousands of hours gathering what is possibly the biggest collection of start-up data ever and comparing billion-dollar start-ups to ones that didn't make it to one of them. The data was 30,000 information points covering nearly every factor such as the number of competitors and market size, founder's age, their university's rankings, the high-quality investors as well as fundraising times and numerous other factors. The results were very different from what was what he expected. To name a few:
The majority of unicorn founders did not have previous experience in the business
There's nothing wrong with being a sole founder, or being a non-technical CEO
Just 15 percent of the participants participated in any accelerator program.
Nearly half had strong competition in the beginning. Being the first to market an idea doesn't really make a difference.
There are also stories from the early days of billion-dollar start-ups in person. The book features exclusive interviews with the investors and founders from Zoom, Instacart, PayPal, Nest, Github, Flatiron Health, Kite Pharma, Facebook, Stripe, Airbnb, YouTube, LinkedIn, Lyft, DoorDash, Coinbase and Square Venture capitalists such as Elad Gil Peter Thiel, Alfred Lin from Sequoia Capital and Keith Rabois of Founders Fund, as well as untold stories of the beginnings of ByteDance (TikTok), WhatsApp, Dropbox, Discord, DiDi, Flipkart, Instagram, Careem, Peloton, and SpaceX.
With a wealth of counterintuitive information and insider stories from those who have created enormously successful businesses, Super Foundersis an innovative and useful guide to investors, entrepreneurs as well as anyone who is interested in the factors that make a startup successful.
