Startups Thriving: Debunking the Myths


  • Contrary to popular belief, startups are not performing as poorly as generally projected.
  • The startup climate seems more doom and gloom due to biased news coverage focusing on failures rather than success stories.
  • Several startups are surviving and even thriving amidst difficult economic conditions, showing resilience and adaptability.
  • More comprehensive data and balanced reporting can help reflect the true state of startup performance.


Contrary to the bleak image that’s been painted in the headlines, you would be surprised to know that startups are not all in pothole-filled roads. The prevalent media portrayal of startups is not completely reflective of the reality. Many startups continue to venture into the rough tides, demonstrating their grit and adaptability.

This incongruity between the headlines and the reality stems from a bias in news coverage, which tends to spotlight failures rather than success stories. Fifteen corporate catastrophes will hit the front page, overshadowing hundreds of quiet victories.

Rather than subscribing to the doom and bloom narrative, we should strive to look at more comprehensive data and strive for balanced reporting. This helps to stop cataclysmic narratives from escalating and enables us to appreciate both the successes and learn from the failures in the startup landscape.


As someone who tirelessly follows the startup scenario, I feel the need for balanced reporting is more critical than ever. While we should certainly not ignore failures and the lessons they present, it’s equally important not to overlook the significant achievements that startups accomplish against all odds. This will provide a more realistic and less skewed perspective of the startup ecosystem, fostering a healthier and more positive mindset among potential entrepreneurs and investors.
