DANIELLE Morrill’s initial startup failure in 2012 led her to think about the factors that contribute to a young company’s quick demise. The data she had gathered was noticed by a number of investors, such as Marc Andreessen and Dave McClure. Morrill told them they could have the data by backing her seed round. More than three years later, Morrill runs Mattermark, a platform VC firms use to quantify signals of potentially lucrative startups.
