3 - Reasons Why Start Ups Fail
Most fashion start-ups focus on their product and begin their journey without knowing the fashion industry well enough. They will soon learn that they also have to deal with other branches of the industry, such as product development, marketing and sales. Each branch has its specialization fields and work sequence. Not knowing how things work will cause delays and extra costs.
Creating accurate schedules is impossible without a deep understanding of the fashion industry. Unfortunately, because fashion start-ups lack this knowledge, delivery dates are often not met, resulting in delays, cancelled orders and extra costs.
The process of creating a new fashion brand is long and intricate. Consequently, each development stage requires specialists. Unfortunately, most fashion start-ups don’t know which specialists they need or underestimate the necessity of these specialists. The main reason for start-ups not working with experts is because they think they are too expensive. When they decide not to work with specialists, they will most likely encounter significant obstacles later in the development process that might jeopardize the survival of their brand.
