Why Do So Many Start-ups Fail?

The buzz: Startup fever.

Whooosh! The sound of start-ups roaring out of the gate with energy, commitment, passion. Thud! The sound of over 90% of startups failing. Did they misread the market, run out of cash, choose the wrong team? There must be a way to boost the hit rate and spread the wealth of entrepreneurial spirit beyond Silicon Valley, India, London, Israel, and other startup-friendly environments – but how?

The experts speak.

Suraj Sudji, SAP Startup Focus: “Startup companies need early planetary alignment because there are so many things that can go wrong.” (Jeff Bezos)

Professor Rajeev Srinivasan, India Panel of Intellectual Property Rights: “From experience, I found that the main reason for entrepreneurial failure is the market: market failure, marketing capability, and distribution reach.”

Lakshman Pachineela Seshadri, SAP: “Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship…the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.” (Peter F. Drucker)
