In entrepreneurship, failure is the fertile soil in which new ventures grow. It’s the training ground for your next venture. It’s the master class in the school of entrepreneurship.
But failure is really hard to talk about.
Acknowledging failure is a major part of the growth and development of entrepreneurs. This event has been created to help build an entrepreneurial community where we celebrate audacious attempts, and mistakes and failures are shared openly.
RADIUS and Vancity are excited to co-host British Columbia’s first ever Social Entrepreneur Failure Wake on September 24th from 6-8 pm at the Portside Pub! The evening will feature several short talks from brave entrepreneurs dealing with failure, and an Irish Wake style celebration to help put these stories firmly behind them.
Keynote Speaker - Grace Sai, Founding CEO of Hub Singapore & Social Entrepreneur in Residence at INSEAD
