Google's Marissa Mayer Thought Google Had a 2pct Chance of Success [management.fortune.cnn.com]
Several things drew Marissa Mayer to Google in 1999, when the young engineer was weighing offers from several startups during the dot-com boom. One of them was the fact that she would be the first female engineer among a team of eight, as opposed to being the first female among 48 engineers at a different startup the jeers she received when she visited that office were enough to turn her off.

Another reason was that she believed Google had a 98% chance of failing. It turns out that 2% odds of success were far greater than what she bet on other startups at the time.
