There is a popular saying that 90% of Startups shut their business within one year of their commencement. Do you know what are the reasons why startup fails? Let us analyse some of the common reasons:-
1. Proper Knowledge:- Passion is important but what is more required is proper indepth knowledge. Primary research is critical, whatever it takes. Knowledge of what you offer is ok but you need to have knowledge of what your customer wants. All your research should revolve around customers. Do face to face calls, physical meetings or phone call, do whatever it takes, but you need to find out what your customer wants vis-a -vis what you have in your basket.
2. Finance :- Finance is very critical to the success of startups. You need finance at each and every stage of your startup. Some startups have limited availability of finance and fail to rise again after committing some initial mistakes. Every mistakes brings with an opportunity but one must have the mindset to learn and money to seek support of experts. Lack of money creates a mindset where after initial setback, the entrepreneur does not take steps to overcome the hurdles.
Product Specification :- Lack of well defined and written specification of the product.
3. Lack of Well defined Core of what you are offering.
4. Lack of well defined Sales Process.
5. Absence of well defined Business model and your money making model.
6. Ignorance about how to set up pricing framework.
7. Failure to calculate the Cost of Customer Acquisition.
8. Starting the business on your assumption and not testing the assumptions and failure to build the minimum viable product on the basis of customer research.
9. Launching of product without undertaking any of the above steps. Most of the startups launch their product first without going through the above steps and finally failing.
10. Finding a founding team:- Startup is not a lonely journey and therefore, you will have to find a founding team.
