What do venture capitalists and angel investors cite as the common cause of the failures in their portfolios? That's a great question, which somebody posed in Quora. And as I write this post, it has several really interesting answers.
One of the most common failures I see in startups is lack of focus. Unfocused entrepreneurs boast that their new technology will generate multiple disruptive products for consumers as well as enterprises around the world. Investors hear this as trying to do too many things with limited resources, meaning the startup will not shine at anything, and will not survive the competition.
