Venture Rank's Founder Score is based on founders past success as entrepreneurs, operators, researchers, or experts in their fields.
High marks are given to founders with successful exits, or key roles at world class companies (VP of Engineering at Stripe, CFO of a F500, etc.), and those that have relevant experience in their target market (Ed Tech Founder, with K-12 Teaching experience, etc.).
Low marks are given to inexperienced founders, with little track record within their existing company, or otherwise.
