I mean, on some level I agree with everything you’re saying here. But I’m not saying that the “real problem” with startup is the low acceptance ratios or even the broadening of support. I’m saying it’s one problem in a sea of problems. There’s A LOT wrong with how a lot of people approach entrepreneurism — from how to build the business to how to grow the business to how to exit the business.

My approach is to start to tactically address these wrongs at the entrepreneur level.

You’ve put a lot of thought into it. That kind of thought is exactly what’s needed to make more viable, successful, independent businesses.
