This question already has an answer here:
I accepted a job offer in May at a large company in finance. My start date is in September. In the time between accepting the offer and now, I have worked on developing a project of mine with some friends, and it's been successful and I'd like to back out of the job offer to work on my startup full time. I feel bad for wasting this company's time and don't want to burn any bridges. How should I explain this situation?
