It is very easy to create a model of an ideal startup
It is very easy to create a model of an ideal startup, but nonetheless we try to give a definition The ideal startup is a combination of opportunity, team and timing. The ideal startup addresses a huge market place that is receptive to a change or is just being created due to a paradigm shift, has a team that is sensitive enough to the demands of the market, and hits the market at the right moment, not too early and not too late.
Any single one of those characteristics, if it is bad enough, kills the venture. No single one of them being good enough can make it. So no single big market opportunity alone will compensate for a lousy team and inadequate timing. Pretty much all these pieces have to be there in order for it to work. You need excellence in all three things.
