I think you do not know how many software companies exist now and have been created in the past.

Many fail. But so do companies that have tangible products. Consider Pet Rocks. Or more recently the significant downturn of NFTs.

I worked for a software company that had at least two funding rounds and at least from the demonstration standpoint had a wonderful service. But there was no reasonable way that they could have ever monetized it. The market was very limited and very cash poor.
