It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Entrepreneurship is challenging, whatever your background, in the current science- and technology-driven Western world. However, unlike traditionally dominant, native-born, white male entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and elsewhere, those who face greater hurdles blocking their path to success primarily come from marginalized and minority groups, both real and self-perceived—including immigrants, refugees, women, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians. Despite their potential to innovate and add value in the global marketplace, they persistently struggle, or fail, because they lack the requisite code-breaking skills. This book helps these underdog entrepreneurs acquire those skills with actionable advice to achieve and sustain success. It proposes a framework that pinpoints what the author calls the outsider problem—that is, situations in which individuals are primarily disadvantaged because they lack access to networks that facilitate superior learning and performance outcomes.
We might not know who Stephen F. Austin is known as the father of Texas, who gave his name to a university there or that one school, ambitiously, calls its team the Governors Austin Peay.

Researchers at Bowling Green State University — perhaps none too coincidentally, a typical underdog school — once documented the phenomenon.
