These Are The Mistakes That Kill Startups [Infographic]

Startup failure rate is pretty high. It is even scary. 80% of startups fail. But what does it take to build a successful startup? Paul Graham of YC wrote: if you have a list of things not to do, then you can turn it into recipe for your success just by avoiding those things. Mark Vital of Funders and Founders took Paul Graham's article on startup mistakes and turned it into a beautiful infographic. This is really interesting because startup is a real difficult journey. You get to do so many things but it does not mean that doing all those things will make your journey easier unless you avoid messing things up. This list is a real help in not messing up while working hard in building your company.
