What happens when you lock a bunch of computer nerds in a room for 90-days and encourage them to create new startup companies? Well, for one thing, they stop having sex.
That’s one of the findings in a new infographic (yeah, sounds kind of dirty considering the topic, doesn’t it?) produced by TechStars’ participants Vizify and EveryMove. They found that founders of the TechStars Seattle class had 63 percent less sex during the program than they did during the prior three months.
Now, at least as common wisdom has it, computer geeks traditionally haven’t engaged in as much sex as their peers. Of course, Revenge of the Nerds helped to correct this misperception.
Anyone who has started a company knows that it takes a toll — on your body, mind and, yes, the activities in the bedroom.
Among other things, the infographic shows that 31 percent of the founders in TechStars Seattle are married, and 27 percent have kids. Thirty five percent have masters degrees, and the average age is 31.
The infographic was released in advance of TechStars’ Demo Day, which is taking place today at the Showbox Sodo. GeekWire will be there reporting on the activities, so stay tuned for more.
