Startup Graveyard digs up failed startups so you can hopefully avoid the same mistakes they made...

Startup Graveyard

We stumpled upon Startup Graveyard a few days ago, and thought it wise to share. It seems that the sites makers (We're not too sure who they are at the moment) have created Startup Graveyard as a resource for entrepreneurs to avoid making the same GRAVE mistakes that other, now failed startups have made. Its a visually appealing site, albeit there's only 24 failed startups to currently choose from - although theres a promise more will be added over time.

They are hoping that the project, amoungst other things can "help de-stigmatize failure" and "increase transparency". Its certainly true that the site looks more like a handy resource than just a bit of fun, and when you click on an individual startup, it will give you the key reasons why the startup perhaps failed, their startup vertical and even how much money they had raised before they closed their doors for the final time.

Startup failure is pretty common to be fair, so any site that might help aonther startup not reach a dead-end is a good thing...
