      I found this to be interesting about new business start ups:
      1. The average and median age of company founders when they started their current companies was 40.

      2. 95.1 percent of respondents themselves had earned bachelor's degrees, and 47 percent had more advanced degrees.

      3. Less than 1 percent came from extremely rich or extremely poor backgrounds

      4. 15.2% of founders had a sibling that previously started a business.

      5. 69.9 percent of respondents indicated they were married when they launched their first business. An additional 5.2 percent were divorced, separated, or widowed.
