The GE national report states that every year, there are over 100 million startups launched. This is equivalent to three startups every one second. The competition can always become stiffer when you are starting your startup in an environment that has already been flooded by startups. Another study done by the Small Business Association SBA, states that it is not necessarily true that most startups fail in their first year, but in its report, up to 30% of newly launched businesses fail within their first two years of launch. 50% fail within their first five years of start. 66% of them fail in their 10th year.
