The Other "F" Word - Stories of Startup Failures

The F-word gets a bad rap - “Failures” - that is. 

Why are failures so uncomfortable to talk about, when overcoming them teaches us so many lessons (oh hey there resiliency and hustle)? Sharing failure stories facilitates a paradigm shift in the way we think about, and respond to startup challenges. 

 

Join us for lessons learned from three incredible entrepreneurs: Mandy Balak, Founder of The Ace Class & It's A Date Night, Kevin Franco, Founder of Francomedia and Brad Spence, Founder of Creative Impact Health Foundation.

 

This honest discussion about pitfalls and those oh “F” moments will take us to the brink of failure and back again. The night will feature stories from the entrepreneurial trenches, networking, and delicious eats.
