Software entrepreneur culture is full of stories of the products that succeeded. But what about the products that failed? We rarely hear much about them.

This can lead to a very skewed perspective on what works and what doesn’t (survivor bias). But I believe that failure can teach us as much as success.

So I asked other software entrepreneurs to share their stories of failure in the hope that we might save others from making the same mistakes.

To my surprise I got excellent 12 responses, which I include below along with one of my own. It is a small sample and biased by self selection, but I think it contains a lot of useful insights.

It is an unashamedly a long post, as I didn’t want to lose any of these insights by editing it down.
