Work life balance for entrepreneurs is a tricky to non-existent thing it seems. In our review of startup demographics going through the Funding Recommendation Engine, one statistic we didn’t share was your answer to the question, how many hours per week do founders spend on their startup?
And the results based on the 1500+ startups who’ve now used the Funding Recommendation Engine is that nearly 82% of you work more than 40+ hours per week. Seems like few of you are building lifestyle businesses. The breakdown of hours per week startup founders spend on their ventures is detailed below.
So much for angel investor Tim Ferriss‘ 4 hour workweek, eh?
