Startup founders have a few personality traits that may make them better suited to the startup life than the general population. Most people don’t have the internal drive to network like their lives depend on it, but that’s just exactly what it takes to be a successful startup founder. Most people are extremely risk averse, but learning from failure is completely necessary to the long-term success of a startup.

Having an idea is one thing, but making it last is something else altogether. Second, what will the company look like in five years?

Fixing problems on the small scale can help ensure longevity in a startup. Learn more about habits of highly successful startup founders from this infographic!
