Hopefully less controversial

 

Due to unfortunate events in Charlotte (namely, being the first #1 seed to lose in the 1st round):

This thread is all about businesses that went under, right?

I hate to be "that guy," but White Star Line actually was pretty successful. They existed for decades before Titanic and another two decades afterward. They were forced to merge with their rival in exchange for effectively getting a government bailout.

 

On the other hand, the International Mercantile Merchant, which was White Star's parent company, was a failure. It was an attempt by J.P. Morgan to effectively monopolize the entirety of naval transportation (both cargo and people), but largely failed by 1919. (Although it actually did live on somewhat as the United States Line which was around until the 1970s or so).
