Why Startups Fail | Visual.ly

Why Startups Fail | Visual.ly | FastStart | Scoop.it
Building a successful business is every entrepreneur's goal - but only 1 in 12 succeed. Why do startups fail? The Startup Genome project analyzed data from 3,200 companies and came up with some answers. At the core of any successful business are two things: a good product and a large market for that product. In other words, a startup should be able to scale. And to scale properly, it must balance the growth of five core dimensions: customers, product, team, business model, and funding. The dominant reason for failure: premature scaling of one or more of those dimensions.

What one startup learned from Seedcamp: Location, lean ideas and listening to good advice

What one startup learned from Seedcamp: Location, lean ideas and listening to good advice | FastStart | Scoop.it

"One of last year’s participating startups was Austria’s Garmz, a fashion-focused service founded by Andreas Klinger, Tamas Locher and Gilbert Wedam. We spoke to Andreas, who is also the company’s COO, to find out what Garmz got out of the week and how the year since has treated them, leading up to this week, when it relaunched itself under new name Lookk.

Lookk is a service that provides a way for fashion designers to bypass the traditional retail market and connect directly with consumers, manufacturing and selling their clothing without having to deal with retailers, the traditional gatekeepers to success in the market. Meanwhile, consumers get a chance to discover new design talent and wear clothes that they won’t find on the high street."
