Cause of Failure

Admazely shut down in May 2013 on the grounds that it ran short on financing and didn't figure out how to secure more cash.

Besides funding, an additional problem appeared when several people had to leave the company. One of the co-founders decided to leave the company to relocate with his partner. Admazely also lost two key English-speaking sales people that till then had been very successful in driving sales from the UK market. With low cash supply, the loss of crucial people in his team and a high burning rate, Admazely decided to file for bankruptcy within a year of its launch.
