Startup Genome report: A new framework for understanding why startups succeed

In this report we reveal in-depth research about what makes Silicon Valley startups successful. The report is a 50 page analysis based on data from 650+ web startups. The report was coauthored by Berkeley & Stanford faculty members. Other contributors include Steve Blank, the Sandbox Network, and 10 accelerators from around the globe.

The goal of the report is to lay the foundation for a new framework for assessing startups more effectively by measuring the thresholds and milestones of development that Internet startups move through.

This report is the Startup Genome Project’s first step toward cracking the innovation code of Silicon Valley and spreading it to the rest of the world.
