If you wondered how people win, they failed to get there. FailCon is bringing together 20 speakers and a series of workshops to study the failure process. Happening October 24th, 9:00a - 6:00p at Hotel Kabuki, SF, it is bringing to light the often tabooed use of the term failure.As an entrepreneur, you will inevitably encounter failure; it is overcoming it that is the biggest challenge. At FailCon, we help you do just that. Join founders and partners from MySpace, Uber, Cuil, Airbnb, Khosla Ventures, MindJolt, KISSmetrics, PBworks, Second Life, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and more as share advice on how to reach success.Past ninja speaker from 2010 and teacher legend, Steve Blank, offers some insight about start-up customer development and the role of the pivot (from 30 years of experience mind you):
"In 2009, FailCon launched and surpassed all expectations of what a show on failure could do, attracting incredible speakers like Mark Pincus, Max Levchin, Sandy Jen, Max Ventilla, and more!"
Summary: Now in its third year, FailCon’s success is riding on the idea that failure can be instructional in the learning process for tech start-ups. In this interview, the event’s founders speak with ZDNet about lessons learned and what to expect at next month’s show.
