Feedback form is now closed.
An amazing town hall style celebration and acceptance of failure in entrepreneurship, individuals, startups, and life. We will uncover personal and professional 'failures', let them go, and create a community support structure for one another championing growth and re-labeling failure as a "Speed Bump."

Ways we use failure as an excuse that limits us from success:

1. Failure is holding me back because I tried and didn't succeed at something.
- I am afraid if I try again I will not succeed again.
- I am afraid of what people will say if I try again.
- I don't want to let people down again.
- I don't want to feel that emotionally again.
- I can't because I tried something before and it didn't work.

2. Failure is holding me back because I am scared of not succeeding.
- What if I fail?
- This is going to require a lot of work and if I fail I've waisted a lot of time, money, etc.
- I can't do it.

3. I am keeping a secret about 'failure'
- I am scared that if people know I was less than successful they will judge me.
- I haven't fully let go and I am not ready/can't move on.

A group journey from seeing failure as a scarlet letter to seeing it as a badge of honor.

Come with any idea or startup and “let it go” in a celebration of failure. Talk briefly about what your thing was (startup, project, idea), why it didn’t work, acknowledge the positive and bury it (metaphorically).

Attendance is open to all.
