Which is more important as a startup: hard work or luck?
I know hard work is important, but I have seen a lot of entrepreneurs work really hard, have great ideas, but who just cannot seem to succeed. I have seen other entrepreneurs succeed quickly with way less work. Does luck play a big role in startup success?
It's a yes and no question as not every entrepreneur is built the same. Undoubtedly hard work and drive play the greatest part in any endeavor. Luck in my experience comes with the effort made in connection and talking with as many people possible. I have seen so many start-ups that never made it because of intestinal fortified or lack thereof, throwing the towel in just before the fight was won. Also a few of those lucky people came from a privileged environment. Hope that helps you Zack.
