It’s a fact that 85% of the startups fail, less than 10% are able to raise external funds, so what makes a company so special that it makes to that narrow zone where only the best are nurtured.
In this video, entrepreneur and angel investor Petri Lehmuskoski shares his experience on why startups fail, how to validate a bussiness idea, how to find the right investor etc. Also, he throws light on subjects like each stage requires different type of financing, too much money will create problems, companies with limited funding are more successful, ideas are just the multiplier of execution (Derek Sivers), you have to learn to crawl before you can run. Even if you have past experiences, startups fail because of premature scaling: they stop learning and begin selling (Startup Genome report), early startup mission is generate learning, not revenue, theory and reality of startup growth process: linear process vs continuous learning.
