The Language of Culture presents 'Entrepreneurial F***-ups -- Stories of Failure'

Feedback form is now closed.
Based on which statistics you read, between 70-85% of entrepreneurial startups will fail! In fact, we'll take it a step further -- every entrepreneur is going to fail. Failure is part of the entrepreneur's life. Success as an entrepreneur is not defined by avoiding failure, but by how you handle failure when it inevitably happens. True entrepreneurs aren't ashamed or embarrassed by their failures, they brag about them! Because it demonstrates their ability to overcome obstacles that will make others quit.

This panel discussion will feature five successful Vancouver-area entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds and industries, who will all share stories of their biggest failures, what they learned from it, how they overcame it, and what advice they have for others in similar situations; and will be moderated by John Lombard. It will be followed by a Q&A, for people to ask questions, or share their own experiences with failure.

For those who would like the opportunity to meet and talk with our panel of successful entrepreneurs, we are organizing a VIP lunch right after the event. Seating is limited to 10 guests, and will give you the unique chance to share your ideas, ask questions, and get advice from our panel members. Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, so go here to get your ticket now: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/entrepreneurial-f-ups-vip-lunch-tickets-70339636747
