In 2009, we surpassed all expectations of what a show on failure could do, attracting incredible speakers like Mark Pincus, Max Levchin, Sandy Jen, Max Ventilla, and more!

In 2010, we made headlines, getting onto the front page of the SF Chronicle Business Section, in the San Jose Mercury News, in Wired, and in TechCrunch.  Over 450 founders, developers, investors, and service providers joined us to learn from one another's mistakes and struggles.  Speakers included David Pogue, Jay Adelson, Heather Champ, Paul Buchheit, Steve Blank, Esther Dyson, and dozens more.

In 2011, we broke all records, reaching over 750 people in both San Francisco and Paris.  We attracted founders, developers, investors, and service providers  to learn from one another's mistakes and struggles.  Speakers included Vinod Khosla, Chris DeWolfe, Anna Patterson, Joe Gebbia, Katherine Barr, Travis Kalanick, and dozens more!

In 2012 we'll be back to teach new lessons, focus on the best stories of the year, and continue helping founders build the strongest product they can!  Join for what many call THE best startup event in the Valley.

You aren’t a real entrepreneur until you’ve had to deal with failure, and recovering from it - financially emotionally and practically - can be challenging. Hear how some major players in the industry have dealt with startup troubles recovered and kept a positive tenacious and energetic attitude through it all.
