2. Genetics based match making – Failed to bring investment, failed customer validation,being too early, technological unavailability locally.

3. Cloud based Virtual Desktop Streaming to television – Succeeded in inviting interest and potential multi-million deal. Failed due to unfavorable business circumstances.

4. Semantic Web services – Dropped due to difficulty in getting clients.

5. Algorithmic Trading – Java based web service to create and test trading algorithms. Succeeded in setting up kick-ass team, great product, gather business interest. Failed due to getting funds, financial exhaustion and unsustainable conditions, difficulty scaling up and unfavorable team dynamics.
