Succeeding by Failing

Comments (4)

Business 2.0 has a good article titled A startup’s best friend? Failureon how to succeed by paying attention and responding to failure.  Dogster, Google, and Riya ( are profiled.  I got plenty of chuckles after I made an investment in Dogster.  I look forward to the day when I can say “look who’s barking now.”

    Thanks for letting us know about this article. Was a good read. Dogster is one of those sites that have a quirky and fun goal/feel to them. I have met Ted and he is a very nice guy, I wish them well.

    Jeremy Liew also wrote an interesting blog post about failure here…

    I met with Ted during the early days – when we were both starting out. Although we are in similar space, he was very helpful.

    Dogster’s success is well deserved.

    making mistakes is a key way of learning – it’s called feedback.
