Abstract: In the last five years, India has become a land of startups. It stands third in the world. It has given lot of employ-ment to the youth, but the bitter truth is that 90% of startups get failed. There always remain the collective contribu-tion of founders, employees and investors in a product based startup. A lot of study on the failure of operations, marketing, sales, and delivery has been already done but very less work has been done on the study of the failure of product development. This paper explores the crucial product development parameters that can lead to the failure of the product based startup/organisation. The evolution cycle of a product based startup can be considered in three stages: • Starting Phase • Stability Phase • Growth Phase Symptoms which can occur in the above three phases were discussed and the issues which appear were analysed.
Keywords: Startups, Product Based Startup, Startup Failure.
