Dumb ways to die as a startup

Dumb ways to die as a startup

Startups are more likely to die than to succeed. One can learn more about what not to do than what successfully worked for others.

I did a talk at Oxford University about Dumb Ways to Die. I break out some of the key reasons that startups fail.

The five things to watch out for are:

  1. Team – founder blow ups
  2. Burn – premature scaling
  3. Market – size matters
  4. Execution – don’t do dumb shit
  5. 5 – don’t read TechCrunch

I’ll try bosh out a video on this. Sure I can make up what I talked about before.

Every time I do a talk there is always some technical error that means I wan’t recorded. Go figure.
