About Fail Conf 1.0

The fail conference is a grassroots initiative for entrepreneurs and startups. It is centered on the failure stories of now successful entrepreneurs and start-ups.

This set of people would be sharing stories of their struggles, mistakes, and failures on the road to success.

There is so much buzz around the success stories of start-ups, businesses, and entrepreneurs, however, there is an overwhelming silence surrounding the struggles and failures attached to their success stories. It's time to switch the narrative, and speak the complete truth, with great success comes a fair share of failure.
