Tom Howard of Adioso

"You took some funding, and you didn't make it to the next milestone. That's what failed startups look like."

This series of posts is a brilliant, open, honest and humble take on startup life by Tom Howard of Adioso. Well worth a read.

Part 1: Reality Check

Part 2: Stunts


  1. I made myself a cup of tea and had a nice sit-down.

    Brilliant to read, as well as reassuring. I am running a start-up off the back of my existing business, with a November launch date. Sometimes it's nice to know you're not alone doing what you believe in and fighting hard to make it happen. It's easy to let the tough times eclipse those little victories which make the journey worthwhile.

    And thank you Michael for all your posts. Entertaining as well as informative.
