“Creating a healthy ecosystem is about churn. Whether companies grow, fail, leave or succeed is all part of it.” – Scott Case

The fact that somebody took a risk, got funded, hired some people and tried something is a good thing…for everybody.  We need to embrace our innovators and entrepreneurs and celebrate their failures as well as their successes.  A community that tolerates risk attracts more entrepreneurs and better companies.

The supreme challenge is typically not a lack of good ideas nor is it capital.  It’s experienced entrepreneurial talent.  You can’t gain experience without a few mistakes and at least a failure or tow.  That’s when you learn the most.

Churn is good.
