CHALLENGES FACING ENTREPRENEURS
70% Of Businesses Will Fail Within 10 Years
20% fail after 1 year & 50% fail within the first 5 years. This failure creates massive amounts of financial loss, damages to family/friends, lawsuits, grief, health problems, anxiety and other stresses.
The Top 6 Reasons Why Businesses Fail Are:
- Leadership failure
- Lacking uniqueness & value
- not in touch with customer needs
- unprofitable business models
- poor financial management
- rapid growth & over-expansion
CHALLENGES FACING INVESTORS
1. Lack Of Leadership
Leadership and team strengths are major building blocks of success
and are often unknown at the time of investment
2. Product Market Fit
Is hard to predetermine at the time of investment
3. 90% Of Vcs Do Not Add Value
VC’s don’t have active participation or consulting for their investment
4. Not Learning From Mistakes
Funds have far less IRR and lack a strategy for improving, therefore,
create a repeat of the same old model
