Can scientist build successful startups? Data say yes!

However, It has become increasingly difficult for scientist to raise a good knowledge base to build their own companies from scratch. Even though universities are currently pushing towards technology transfer, only 15% of scientists think about building a company and only 2% decide to dedicate their life building one.

I'll start from my personal experience as scientist/startupper to give a general picture of the relationship between scientific and startup world.
