StartUp Funerals – Failure is success if we learn from it

StartUp Funerals – Failure is success if we learn from it

Rovio made 51 games before finally hitting the jackpot with ‘Angry Birds’.

Walt Disney was told that, ‘He lacked imagination and had no good ideas’.

Henry Ford failed twice in his businesses before he finally went on to build the Ford Motor Company.

Close to 99% of all startups fail! An Entrepreneur must face rejection on a daily basis,till he can establish himself in his field. To succeed in the cut throat world of entrepreneurship, an entrepreneur must liken himself to a phoenix, he must rise from the ashes of his defeat and start all over again to succeed.


At Startup Funerals, we are on a mission to celebrate failure regularly by providing you a place where you are comfortable to share the stories of your failure and commemorate your startups with others to help our global entrepreneurship community learn valuable lessons from it.

We often find ourselves invited to startup launch parties, but here is an invitation to a funeral, one that will keep you alive!
