Coverage of previous conferences

A lot has been written about FailCon conferences in different locations and everybody from TechCrunch to Forbes and Wired has covered the event. But see for yourself:

“In Silicon Valley, failure has been democratized. You don’t need a lot of money to fail. Nor do you need any previous experience. Take, for example, Brian Wong and Roger Dickey –”


“The willingness to fail is the key ingredient in success, billionaire investor Vinod Khosla told the audience at Failcon today.”


“In Silicon Valley failure is often seen as success as entrepreneurs learn from their mistakes and pivot their startups to try again and get it right.”


“I expected the FailCon conference today at San Francisco’s Hotel Kabuki to be a sort of regret-fest; ex-CEOs of failed startups waxing on the do’s and don’ts for the Silicon Valley youth. I wasn’t entirely off in that expectation, though former Digg CEO Jay Adelson surprised me; he wasn’t one to lament over his missteps at his previous home.”


“A whole conference devoted to failure, FailCon, may be a first, but it’s looking like a success, with the likes of PayPal co-founder Max Levchin talking about how he failed repeatedly before making billions making the payment platform for the web.”
