👋 Hey Failories! It’s Nico over here.

I have two content ideas. You have the power to decide if I work on them by clicking on the links on each one (you can click on both links):Our article on Y Combinator-backed failed startup has done it really well (+60k people have read it in the last two weeks). We can create similar articles for other startup programs like 500 Startups and Techstars. If you would read this content, click on this link (it’ll r-direct you to the YC article).Yesterday, the US streaming platform Quibi shut down, only 7 months after it’s launch. Their failure story is super interesting; it includes burning +$2 billion from investors. If you would like to read an in-depth research of their shut down, click on this link (it’ll redirect you to a WSJ article about Quibi’s shut down).
This newsletter is sponsored by Formlets and Starkflow. The first tool will help you validate your startup idea quickly and cheaply. The second one will help you build a dev team for that validated startup idea 😉

Quick recommendation: If you frequently consume online content, you may have seen the rise of paid newsletters lately. Several writers are making a living through them nowadays.

Dru Riley, Trends.vc‘s founder and Failory’s consultant, has written a great article about paid newsletters (in which I contributed). Make sure to check it out if you’re in the online world as it’s a trend that seems to be here to stay.



As every week, I’d love to hear from you. Anything you’d like to talk about is well-received!
