How not to launch

Learn lessons on failed products and startups

#2 Product of the MonthJanuary 2019

How not to launch is a guide for makers on what NOT to do when launching a new startup or product

  • Pros: 

    Interesting concept, beautiful website, mostly helpful stories


    Needs more in-depth stories

    I think the idea has good potential, but I would love to see more in-depth stories when I click on the cards. Most of them link to a third-party news website, which is nice, but it would be great to have a small post on the HNTL website itself. There's only so many times one can read "Couldn't raise enough capital".

    Cool website, interesting read


    None so far

    Seems pretty interesting, I've been reading a few of the stories and feel smarter already. Failure is important, but it's just as important to learn from it.

Hey there, Wendy here! It's been so great since joining PH! The community here is super legit! The feedback is amazing. Last week I launched How much does it cost to build an app ( and received a lot of love. THANK YOU GUYS!! There was so much I learned--so many knew things that "the books" don't teach you. Over the weekend I decided to capture the things that were hard to find and put them in this web app. I'd love for you to share your war stories so we can make the most epic resource for other markers. Right now it's super lean to prove the idea. I did make a roadmap of some cool things I'd like to add. It would be amazing to hear ideas that you guys have! If you have any questions or would like to report any issues, just comment below and I'll get right on it. Thanks!!
You are on a roll here Wendy! Keep on making! 🎉👏👏👏
