The Reality — Startups Fail

The Reality — Startups Fail

The first true “product” I brought into the world — Oh Hey World — failed.

That’s a bit hard to stomach. We contemplated and tried many, many pivots (such as a focus on relocation). Ultimately, the product didn’t solve an urgent or frequent problem for a large enough addressable market to grow and survive in the world.

Thus, I had to kill my startup baby. I should have done it 18 months ago (18 months = $3600 out of my pocket). Since I’ve already written extensively about the journey here and here, it’s not worth going deep again. If you’re curious, you can read the full Eulogy HERE.

If you visit the main landing page, I’ve embedded some of the old pitch / demo videos we did way back when, as well as a link to the investor deck we put together in 2013.

RIP, OHW.
