Martin, I stumbled across this Post in a Google Search for "Tech Startup Failure Rate versus Restaurants" after I finished reading the following:
"startup restaurants are very difficult to get funding for. triple risk--business, lease, location--compared to tech startups."
This was from a Company that "assists Startups" in obtaining Funding.
I did not get "Pissed Off" per se, yet I "WONDERED" why there was not A RESTAURANT WITH A THEME REVOLVING AROUND "NEGRO LEAGUES BASEBALL HISTORY," and I opened one, THE NEGRO LEAGUE CAFE - CHICAGO (JULY 2004 - MAY 2009) http://www.rsgmag.com/public/115.cfm
I lost my lease in May 2009 to a Landlord that speculated Chicago would get the 2016 Olympic Bid and I am now "On Deck" to "Re-Open" in Baltimore Spring 2012http://mobile.baltimoresun.com/p.p?a=rp&postId=780484&scopeKey=34&postUserId=46&m=b http://www.bmoremedia.com/devnews/negroleague041911.aspx?fb_comment_id=fbc_10150158815564476_15748059_10150159545269476#ffd8a15ba28412
I am currently seeking Funding to Purchase Real Estate in Chicago and "Re-Open," yet I have run up against the "RESTAURANTS ARE TOO RISKY B.S." I dawned on me today to see what was the Failure Rate of Tech v. Restaurants, to that end, Thank You Very Much for your Reassurance and adding "Another Arrow to My Quiver of Passion + Manifest Destiny."
