Startup Funerals are short conferences held bi-monthly across different cities to help our entrepreneurship community learn lessons in failure from startups and entrepreneurs.
Close to 99% of startups fail! Don't you want to know why?
We do! Thats why we started Startup Funerals.
Failure is considered a taboo in our country, hence people are afraid to fail and the ones that do, seldom talk about it. Yet it is only through failure that we can understand the real lessons in success.
We believe the time is now to change how people perceive failure globally!
We want to foster a culture of innovation where people are comfortable to try out new ideas, take calculated risks, and be a little unreasonable.
At Startup Funerals we are on a mission to celebrate failure regularly by providing you a place where you are comfortable to share the stories of your failure and commemorate your startups with others to help our global entrepreneurship community learn valuable lessons from it.
We often find ourselves invited to startup launch parties, but here is an invitation to a funeral, one that will keep you alive!
This conference is a must for any entrepreneur, aspiring entrepreneur, executive, or just a curious person who wants a Saturday evening well spent.
During the event, listen to renowned speakers talk about their experiences in their own ventures – what not to do, what they learned, how it has shaped their businesses, etc. Get a sneak peak into the lives of entrepreneurs who have beaten the odds to come out shining, learn from their trials and tribulations. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you will have a chance to pitch your idea and get live feedback from the audience, and perhaps discover potential members for your own startup team. The event concludes with a networking opportunity, a chance to mingle with like minded individuals, ranging from students, to entrepreneurs, to investors and the like in the startup community.
Limited seating available.
