Event Description

Welcome to FailChats, based on the internationally renowned FailCon: the first conference on startup failures and how to prepare for and recover from them.

Not every startup succeeds. Most persistent entrepreneurs eventually find themselves with a business that is failing or going nowhere. There’s lots of advice about starting a new business and navigating a great exit, but people don’t like to talk about less successful endings.

Well that's what we do best here at FailChats, so we're excited to welcome Ethan Stone and Bennett Young, authors of the popular VentureBeat article How To Exit Gracefully.  They'll review what to expect if you need to shut down, why it's important to prepare early, and how preparing for the worst can actually help increase your chance of success.

As you start your next venture, you want the freedom to keep your eyes on the road ahead and the horizon beyond, not the rearview mirror.

Beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and appetizers are provided throughout the seminar.


6:30-7:00pm - Beer, Munchies, and Networking
7:15 - 8:00pm - Presentations from Ethan Stone & Bennett Young
8:15-9:00 - Continue networking!
