I have to do a paper analyzing unsuccessful entrepreneurs but I can't find anything online. Does anybody know of somebody that I can do research on that had a business that crashed?

Google this:

dot com entrepreneurial failures

every link is a different name.

Good writing!

exactly, that's a good place to start.
I seem to remember a company called CDnow that was public and kind of big for a little while and then faded away, as many tech and dot com's did after about 2001-2002 area.
Here is one that I think is just a real case of unlucky lottery:
Ayds Diet Candy
Thanks I will take a look at each one and deside. You guys save my butt :) thanks!
Look up:

Kamran Elahian, Momenta Corp.


Jerry Kaplan, Go Corp.

Both of these individuals tried to create computers that could recognize handwriting. Both burned through at least $40 million dollars before folding. Pretty big examples of entrepreneurial failure.
