3 common problems for startups and how to avoid them
3 common problems for startups and how to avoid them It is undeniable that startups have become a popular business model nowadays. Many people want to become successful startups. Believe it or not, only 10% of startups succeed. Many startups ended up closing their businesses after 5-10 years because they had encountered many business problems and didn’t know where to seek help or expert advice.

A lot of people want to build a startup business with a strong desire to innovate new technology to meet the needs of users and make their lives easier. However, not all startups succeed. A survey has shown that up to 90% of startups have failed.

A survey by CB insight has revealed 20 reasons why startups fail. Today we have picked up the top 3 problems why startups eventually close their businesses. The first problem found in up to 42% of businesses surveyed is “no market need.” Startups fail because they are unable to solve market problems on the spot. Having superb technology at hand is useless if you cannot fix the users’ pain points.


The next problem that makes it difficult for startups to continue is “running out of cash.” Most startups start a business with their own capital. Some of them cannot manage fixed costs well enough and end up running out of money. In some cases, startups have already secured funding from investors; but still unable to manage the funds to develop products and manage the organization well. 


The third problem is that the company does not have the right team. Although it doesn’t seem important, startups up to 23% encounter this problem. If the team members do not have the same objective, in addition to keeping the work from moving forward; it affects the concentration of team members and overall performance of the company in the future. 


Lastly, to build a successful startup business is tough at the beginning because you have to face unexpected problems concerning documents, accounting, resources, technology, and more. According to the CB insight survey, it has been found that the startup problems are somewhat identical. It would help greatly if startups research more information and ask for advice from experienced experts.
