I'm trying to understand the age, ethnicity, education, and buying habits of startup founders. What is a good source for this information?

A great idea is 1% of the work. Execution is the other 99%. In this course, we’ll teach you how to conduct market analysis, create an MVP and pivot (if needed), launch your business, survey customers, iterate your product/service based on feedback, and gain traction quickly.

I agree - some issues may be similar, but many will not. Top of mind, I don't have an international source for this type of data, but I'll ping some friends and see if they do.
