About this event
This is an inspiring hour, where we bring together, high-profile entrepreneurs and investors to share stories of their past failures and unexpected turns of life, but most importantly, how these events were milestones to their successes today. They fully embrace their professional and personal mess and share in today so we can break the taboo surrounding failure and show us what we can learn from our mistakes.
Join us for 30 min of sharing and 30 min of Q&A and authentic and unafraid conversation which you are invited to be part of.
