Bullshit-Collages made from failed Startup Pitches

Love these Bullshit-Collages made from Failed Startup-Slides by Jenny Odell plus some Failed Startup Poetry by Joe Veix: The Findings May Surprise You.

These three collages contain imagery from the presentation decks of 20 startups that went out of business between 2009 and 2016. Joe Veix found the presentations floating around on Slideshare, and also made the accompanying text (a collage of wording from the same decks).

Startup Pitch

by Joe Veix

What’s happening right this minute.

Who we are:
The Perfect Team.

3 floods:
The backlash against mobile technology is real.
Consumers are disenchanted, and seeking more tangible forms of engagement.
We are increasingly dependent on oil.

The photo mess:
Anyone can spontaneously take quality photos of almost anything, anytime.
Every moment will be captured as photos.
A tsunami of photos.

What have we lost?
Ceremony. Ritual. Rites of passage. Initiation leading to genuine social cohesion. Discovery and play. Opportunities for meaningful risk, challenge, and reward. Kinship, mentorship, communion. Embodied culture; heritage and legacy. Convenience. Affordability. Engagement. Community Involvement. Alignment. Sustainability. Interchangeability. Safety. Security. Freshness and high quality. Happy people. Deeper understanding, transformation, and ultimately … meaning.
