Failcon: Presented by 6.2
It’s time to stop being afraid of failure and start embracing it.
Some of us 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 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.
This year 6.2 has brought the program to the Asia-Pacific region, with FailCon to form part of Vivid Sydney 2012.
FailCon commenced in San Francisco in 2009 and has since developed a global presence as a one-day event for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to study their own and others’ failures and prepare for future success. Last year FailCon continued its successful series in San Francisco and launched overseas in France and Brazil.
