What is the purpose of quoting the odds of failure? I think most people in this forum have heard the high odds against funding. First, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the question asked. Second, if the odds of failure apply to one, then perhaps one should not be pursuing entrepreneurship. Third, most of the people I come across who constantly cite how difficult entrepreneurship is and the odds are rarely doing anything more than advising or teaching. When you are exhausting efforts, you don't have time to constantly tell people how difficult entrepreneurship is or raising funding, or all the many ways you can fail.
If the question was "How difficult is entrepreneurship, and what are the odds to raise funding, that is the time to regurgitate stats you read in books and online and in forums you attend while entrepreneurs for whom the odds don't apply are busy building their companies.
The answer to the question is absolutely a "non technical" person can create a startup. A "creative person" can as well. Learn your strengths, and your weakness and build a great team and a great product and you will have success. Instead of listening to people say what can and cant be done, follow your heart, and support your mind with the needed competence to succeed. Hire people who are smarter than you, never stop learning, or growing, and you will succeed.
