Q: Is it a prerequisite to have a high IQ in order to succeed as a tech entrepreneur?
It is a prerequisite to hire folks with a high IQ to success in software.
You probably need a wicked smart CTO, some incredible engineers, maybe an insanely smart head of product or marketing, etc.
But if you can recruit people smarter than you … which is a superpower … then that works, too.
It doesn’t really help as CEO to be the smartest person at your company.
