FailCon is a one-day conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to study their own and others’ failures and prepare for success.
Stop being afraid of failure and start embracing it.
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 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 each other: 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 first took place during the amazing Web 2.0 expo in 2009, and started going global in 2010 with events in Australia, Brazil, France and now for the first time in Germany.
Failure is still a taboo topic all over the world, but we’re working to change that. Because the best way to prevent Failure is to learn from your own and other peoples failures.
Location: Jerusalemkirche, Lindenstr. 85, D-10969 Berlin
