This quiz is a promotional tool for the book "The Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By." Sounds like it could be an interesting book, although if all it does is answer these kinds of trivia questions, I probably won’t read it…
Post a comment here if you take the quiz and let everyone know your score. I got 55%. At least I knew some big ones like the most common reason people start new businesses, the typical capitalization of a new business, and the most common source of financing for a U.S. start-up.
35% – looks like I’m stuck workin’ for da’ man.
I was overly pessimestic on most of the business survival stats, didn’t know why people generally start a business, but for some reason I “knew” (read “guessed”) which country was tops for business startups.
