There are tons of factors that determine whether or not a startup will succeed. There’s the founders, the team around the founders, the user experience, the investors you bring on, and the list goes on and on. I have yet to be involved with a successful startup but I have observed one thing in this crazy startup world, and that is that relevancy matters.
There are new consumer-focused startups popping up every day, many that make me wonder why in the world anyone would even use them. And as I mentioned, there are plenty of reasons why some startups succeed and some fail, but I want to give 2 examples of both and relate them back to relevancy.
