failconWe all know that for every startup that succeeds, there are countless others that don’t. In fact, the stats, should you choose to read them can be pretty scary. However anyone who has ever been in a startup which failed will generally tell you that they learned so much - and sometimes much more than if things had all been plain sailing.

The reality is that failing in a startup isn’t something to be ashamed or afraid of - in fact it’s quite the opposite - and that’s exactly what a conference planned for early next year is seeking to prove.

Its motto? “ Stop being afraid of failure and start embracing it.”

FailCon is a one day conference for tech entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to come together and study and assess their own and others’ past failures and how to prepare for future success.

It’s not about moaning about all the 'should have, would have, could have' moments - it’s about figuring out what went wrong, sharing stories, sharing experiences and hopefully a whole lot of learning.

The aim? To make things better next time around.

Sounds great doesn’t it? And refreshing too.

If you’d like to attend this London based event, April 8th 2014 is the date for your diary. Tickets can be purchased now from the FailCon site. And if you’d like to get involved by speaking at the event yourself,  you can - you simply need to apply via the site itself.
