When hiring for your startup, how much does not having a college degree play into your decision?

Zip. For someone who can deliver the goods, the degree (or lack of one) is irrelevant. For someone who can't, it amounts to nothing more than a degree in "you owe me a chance because I went to college".  (Michael Forrest Jones' answer to Do employers take the University of Phoenix seriously when considering an applicant's resume? | Michael Forrest Jones' answer to What is it like to be a high school dropout?   )

Oh, you've "proven yourself"?  Maybe you have -- to someone else. My hiring decisions are about my needs, not your pedigree or credentials.
