Why do startups fail even after raising substantial funding? by @R44D
Answer by Raad Ahmed:
Stated bluntly the reasons are numerous and varied. As the research presented below shows from, a survey of 156 startups examined the reasons these startups failed and classified into 20 distinct categories (the sum of the percentages exceeds 100%, because many startups fail for more than one reason).
Underfunding aside given your focus on startups with substantial funding it appears that a lack of market demand, team-related problems, competitor and pricing pressures occupy the majority of failures. As such it is worthwhile to look at this study in-depth and try to reverse engineer some of these failures so as to try to avoid their mistakes in your own venture.
