Reasons of Startup Failure

Setting up a business is not that easy. You have to master the art of entrepreneurship, marketing, financing, and management to make a business a successful one. It takes a lot of time, effort and courage to achieve your goals and pursue your dreams for your startup but sometimes, no matter how courageous you are, despite all the hardships you have been through, even when you give it your very best shot, failure is inevitable.

Wrong Market Timing – When starting up a business, you have to remember that you are establishing it to solve a problem that you are pretty sure that it is experienced by the users. When there is no problem, it just probably means that there is no market. There might be no compelling reason or event that can make the consumers purchase your goods. It seems like your market is wrong timing. You have to consider the necessity of the consumers and the timeliness of your products. 

• Poor Team Management – A weak management team can be a root cause of all the failure of startups because it covers all aspects of the business. Most of the time, poor management make mistakes in several areas. Sometimes, they make products that no one wants to buy because they failed to do valuable work that will validate the ideas upon the development of the startup business. Usually, they are poor at execution that makes issues about the products as if the product has not been made on time. They are always failing in meeting the deadlines. Moreover, poor management leads to wrong decisions in ensuring the welfare of the business that makes the startup fail. 

• Running out of cash – Financial stability is vital in startups, thus, running out of cash is one of the major reasons for startup failure. The management must assure that the business has enough cash to run its transactions properly. Take note of these reasons of startup failure so that you can prevent this thing from happening when you decide to open a new business again.
