Fail Fest Raleigh 2015 was a complete success on Wednesday, May 13th. We're still gathering the photos and videos, laughs and tears, juggling balls and improv lines of the entire event and will be posting all that we can in the coming weeks. Thank you for coming out and sharing your story. A special thanks to all of our sponsors - Innovate Raleigh, Vaporware, Skoyz Wellness, Fanbase, BigBoss, Gap Jumpers, OrderUp, REX Healthcare, and Wells Fargo!
Fail Fest Organizer Dan Moore was recently on Little Raleigh Radio talking about Fail Fest and the place of failure in today's startup scene. Click here to listen to the full episode on #Innovate365.
Our speaker and breakout session has been announced. Click on each time to learn more.
For entrepreneurs, failure is a fact of life. And it might suck, but it’s a big part of the road to success. Failure leads to insights. And insights lead to innovation. But even so, we’re still reluctant to talk about failure. Who wants to admit they messed up? It’s time to change that perception. Failure is an outcome; it’s part of the journey; it helps us learn and improve. Failure doesn’t have to be fatal.
Fail Fest brings together Raleigh’s innovators to swap the stories behind our entrepreneurial spirit. We’re a rowdy bunch, so this event won’t be a butts-in-seats kind of conference. You’ll get to pitch “bad” ideas, learn to juggle, and do some public speaking of your own. We’re all letting go of the safety net together to make failure part of the conversation.
