Scipreneurs don't need someone with business experience

Many incubators push for the idea that scipreneurs need someone with business experience to get started. Many scipreneurs actually believe it, and go out looking for more experienced people (most likely men), that overvalue their contributions to a small company.

It's very easy to fall for the gray hair fallacy.

If we keep in mind that Executives are not effectual reasoners, the best shot an entrepreneur has is to find another entrepreneur (or at least someone entrepreneurial), or to build a team with the missing skills. However, the "Business Experience" will come at a cost and burden that a startup can't simply bear.

What I believe is that scipreneurs need someone with whom to build, experience is a secondary metric.
