Research shows that entrepreneurs are five times more likely to suffer from dyslexia in the UK.
The research carried out by Simfonec, a science research centre based at Cass Business School, UK found that 20% of entrepreneurs (business owners employing at least one person) studied were dyslexic.
The research also found that 70% of dyslexic entrepreneurs who participated in the second, more in depth stage of the research, did not succeed at school.
Researcher and Director of Simfonec, Dr Julie Logan notes that some of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs such as Sir Richard Branson, Sir Alan Sugar, Anita Roddick and Sir Norman Foster allegedly suffer from dyslexia.
Simfonec research shows that entrepreneurs have often failed in the school system – it is only through creativity and tenacity that they have been able to succeed in business.Very often the people who make the most brilliant entrepreneurs will respond badly in the typical classroom environment.
