Book Description:

Why Startups Fail is a book for people who want to start a business but aren’t sure if they should. It’s for people who want to start a business but don’t have much money. It’s also for people who have money but want to grow their business. Almost everyone has an idea for a product or business they could make or start. But eight out of ten new businesses fail in the first three years. Even when venture capitalists back a company, only one in ten succeeds, and 99% of the business plans they see are turned down. It looks like the odds are against you! But entrepreneurs often make the same avoidable mistakes over and over. Why Startups Fail can help you beat the odds and avoid the traps and pitfalls that kill startups early on. Apple, Google, and Facebook are all examples of companies that have done well. But failure can teach you the most important lessons. What choices were made, and why? What would the founders have changed? How did one company make a billion dollars while another with a better product in the same market failed? Dave Feinleib, a serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and blogger, looks at companies that have come and gone. He does this by using his own experience and the knowledge of the Silicon Valley startup community. In short but powerful chapters, he shows how to be a successful business owner: Excellent fit between the product and the market, passion, excellent execution, the ability to change direction, a great team, good funding, and smart spending. In Why Startups Fail, Feinleib shows you how to set up your startup to succeed by repeatedly offering you the mistakes he has seen entrepreneurs make. Why new businesses fail: It shows startups backed by venture capital and self-funded startups how to succeed where others fail. It is helpful for companies just starting out and those that have been around for a while. This book shows you the critical decisions and mistakes that led to the failure of startups and what you can learn from their mistakes. It covers the essential parts of being a successful business owner.
