I think it should be D as the others change the meaning.
Please correct if wrong

A. so much that these companies not discovering a point of differentiation as that they failing to communicate it --- Not discovering is wrong; We need a verb here not a participle

B. so much that these companies do not discover a point of differentiation as that they fail to communicate them --- ‘them’ is wrong pronoun

C. that these companies do not discover a point of differentiation but that they fail to communicate it – Text says that the reason is both non-discovery and not communicating—only thing is that it is more due to non–communicating than due to non discovery. But C alters the intent and claims that the reason for failure is only non–communicating, implying that non discovery has no role in the failure. This is fatal. Another issue, a comma before 'but' would be more grammatical.

D. so much that these companies do not discover a point of differentiation as that they fail to communicate it --- rigorously sticks to original intent and hence the best

E. that these companies discovering a point of differentiation fail to communicate it ---structurally weak; suspect the sentence is incomplete.

C and D are gramatically correct.
But only C makes sense
As for D, it means that: the problem with the start-up failure is not so much that companies don´t discover a point of differentiation but they fail to address it to their clients. Now how can they be blaimed for not addressing to their clients something they don´t know?
Thus, C makes sense by saying that companies know it, but they opt not to address it.

cheers
