Fail Fest: Entrepreneur Edition

The mantra from Silicon Valley is that failure is OK, as long as you do it fast and learn something. Our brave, seasoned experimenters offer a candid into the insights you can glean from when things go sideways. We'll take a close look at start-up life: the big ideas, the pitfalls, how we bounced back and what kept us up at night on the long journey to saving journalism.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone working in tech; we’ve all had our setbacks, and the recovery from them is where true lessons are learned
  • Entrepreneurs -- come laugh and nod along in a knowing way with our stories
