Failure is not something to be ashamed of. Failure is an inevitable and sometimes important part of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Without it, how would we learn?
In this off-the-cuff, unfiltered and unapologetic event, we’ll hear from a variety of speakers about their past failures and what they’ve learned along the way. Sometimes it takes a lot of failed attempts before you get to that one-in-a-million idea that will launch you to success.
Come together, grab a snack and laugh, commiserate and learn with fellow entrepreneurs and find out how their failures made them who they are today.
