The lost opportunities of abandoned contests

I have been on SH for about a year now, and frequently go back to review past contests and take note of the winners to try and improve my future prospects. I have also noted multiple abandoned contests (often continually extended) from CHs who surely must be kicking themselves now. Contests for online distant education, grocery delivery apps, tele-medicine consultation, online art teaching, virtual meetings, and the list goes on… These businesses could have proceeded, even with a “good” name (and maybe not “The One” they all seemed to be holding out for). Then most of these CHs would have been presented with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for their businesses to take root and thrive, while providing much needed services.
