It is inevitable that any small business or startup will encounter failures: in idea development, in teamwork, in hiring, in design, in scaling, in countless unpredictable ways.  Yet conference after conference features speakers only telling you what they did right - something that can be near-impossible to emulate.  At FailCon, join over 400 founders, investors, executives, developers, service provides, and press as we share tips and tools to avoid, prepare for, and recover from the most common startup mistakes.  As a member of Entrepreneur Commons, you can also claim 10% off at with the code "10EC"  

FailCon continues to attract some of the top names in the industry, who come to share stories of failure, what they learned, and how they recovered.  Some of our 2010 speakers include:
  • David Pogue, New York Times
  • Steve Blank, Epiphany
  • Esther Dyson, EDventures
  • Philip Kaplan, Blippy
  • Cindy Cohn, EFF
  • Brian Solis, Future Works
