Entrepreneurs are as averse to risk as anyone else. They take risks, sometimes daily, but they are calculated risks. In Good Odds: Startups from Maine, we hear from the founders of six startups. Their paths into entrepreneurship are different. The motivations that drive them may be different (hint: it’s usually not just about the money). How they experience their valleys of death – the dangerous times in a startup’s life when failure is most common – may be different. One thing they have in common is the ability to calculate and try to mitigate risk. That’s why they have Good Odds.
