The 32% Advantage
Starting in 2014, we tracked the “Still in Business” success measure of both the companies we accepted, and the companies that we did not accept but that we would have accepted if we had capacity. Comparing year by year (e.g. 2014 alumni with 2014 applicants we would have taken but did not) we found that MCN alumni are 32% more likely to be in business today.
Success Measure of Past Entrants
Companies that entered our program more than once were five times as likely to be successful in all areas. Alas, the sample size here is too small (20) to be presented with the rest of our research. But it’s still out favorite data point.
