Failures Welcome Here

Failures Welcome Here

Enough people and the media glamourize entrepreneurship, but more often than not, the path of an entrepreneur is littered with more failures than wins. 

Isn't it time that we talk about them?

Over the last few weeks, we've been working in collaboration with Joint Development Collective and Entrepreneurship For Social Change Meetup to bring you our latest project: I Effed Up.

“I Effed Up" is a candid conversation with purpose-driven individuals about the ups and downs of their journey to create social change. This won't be a panel talk glorifying the entrepreneurial life. Instead, we’ll come together in a safe and informal environment to share royal blunders and mistakes of building something, driven to create change, from nothing.

Akid Azfar - Engineers Without Borders
Hollie Gordon - CrowdChange
Santiago Stacey - Kunachia
Veronika Kwon - Business in the Streets

Join us for FREE and:

  • Share your experiences with a failure-embracing crowd
  • Connect with a community of like-minded social entrepreneurs and do-ers
  • Have an evening of fun and socializing!
