As entrepreneur Theo Paphitis stated last year in an article in The Guardian on why start-up’s fail…
“They haven’t done the research, they don’t know where to go for the right funding … it’s rarely one thing.” However there is a common theme, stated the retail magnate. “The reason people fail is because they don’t do their homework.” You wouldn’t sit an exam without doing any preparation, he pointed out. “A business is no different. It’s about knowing more than the next guy or girl and performing better, and the only way you can do that is through knowledge. It’s basic stuff but we don’t do it.”
