My Startup Failed, and This is What it Feels Like…


Over 90% of tech startups fail, but I never thought my baby, …, would be one of them… Since then I’ve survived being stabbed in the back by cofounders, investment rounds falling through, massive technology fuckups that brought sales to a halt, visa problems, lack of money, lack of traction, lack of a team, hiring the wrong people, firing people I didn’t want to fire, lack of product-market fit, and everything else in between. I learned so much, and yet I failed. I won many battles but I lost the war.
