The startup failure myth started with a Forbes article from 2013, that plainly stated, eight out of 10 businesses fail within the first 18 months. The article references a source from Bloomberg, which is unlinked and unfindable. But with reputable sources like these behind the statistic, it must be true, right? You are incorrect, sir!
