FailCon is a one-day conference for 500+ technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to study their failures and prepare for success. As an entrepreneur, you will inevitably encounter failure; it is overcoming it that is the biggest challenge. At FailCon, we help you do just that. At intimate, relevant and personal sessions, you’ll join founders and partners like Gina Bianci, Chip Conley, Ben Huh, Cindy Alvarez, Scott Berkun, Sean Ellis, Danielle Morrill and more as they share advice on how to overcome failure and reach success.
We all have founded, worked for or invested in startups that have failed. We’re smart, we keep up with the latest in technology trends, but sometimes things just don’t go as planned. How can you predict what will work and what won’t? Well, you can’t. But that doesn’t mean you should stop trying. It just means you should start exchanging stories of what didn’t work and how you pivoted, why you couldn’t raise money, what the wrong hires were like, and when you decided it was time to let go. Entrepreneurs need to hear that from one another: that it’s okay to fail, it doesn’t mean you’re worthless. You’re just like the rest of us, learning from our making mistakes and building something bigger next time.
FailCon is taking place on Monday, Oct. 22, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. For more information, check out http://thefailcon.com.
