Are we on our way to the next dot com or app bubble?

Only few companies, such as Yahoo, survived the dot-com bubble which started in 1995. It is well known fact that most of the startups fail. Invested money gone with that. At the moment there are a good amount of unicorns with crazy valuations. Are we headed towards bubble 2.0 bursting?

Businesses that have people paying with recurring cash or attention (time) have the chance to continue doing well / very well.

If more businesses fail than succeed, one would argue a bubble is unlikely to happen. Scientifically speaking.

The bubble is different this time. We may get a significant market correction, but the fact that money has been so cheap so long has a lot of balance sheets in good order. You also don't see P/Es in the 50/1 range as you did in 2000. Real estate will come down in markets where it is too high and retail space has probably peaked in a lot of places as retail brick and mortar consolidates. The Unicorn valuations are fiction no matter what happens in the market, but a correction will always accompany a flight to safety which means less money for risky start-ups.
