Bangalore: The success of any startup is dependent on the acceptance of the idea that gave birth to the venture. While on most occasions, innovation and creativity leads one to places that are way ahead of time and they foresee immense growth opportunities. But these ideas carry a flip side too coming along with a possibility that people might misunderstand their vision and it might end up being a dud.
For entrepreneurs, the dynamics of success and failure are equivalent and there is a very thin line dividing the two. Besides hard-work and zeal to see his vision transforming into a successful enterprise, one needs to be fortunate for people to understand his idea and be on the same page.
While some entrepreneurs enjoy a fairy tale ending, some are left devastated. And what was their fault? Having an idea that was ahead of its times and thus failed to gather ample audience. The irony remains in the fact that years later when other entrepreneurs adopted the same idea, it turned out to be a great success.
Have a look on some of these startups that paid the price for being ahead of their times:
