Different Types of Risks

Chris Dixon has a great blog post on types of risks:

- Financing risk: You can’t raise money at various stages because you haven’t hitaccretive milestones or your space isn’t appealing to investors.

- Product risk: You can’t translate your concept into a working and compelling product.

- Technology risk: You can’t build a good enough or, if necessary, breakthrough technology.

- Business development risk: You can’t get deals with other companies that you depend on to build or distribute your product.

- Market risk: Customers or users won’t want your product.

Timing risk: You are too early or too late to the market.

- Margin risk: You build something people want but that you can’t defend, and therefore competitors will squeeze your margins.
