- Session type
- BoF Meet
- Technical level
The objective of this session will be to have a panel discussion of entrepreneurs who have unsuccessful stories to talk about. The idea is to help new entrepreneurs learn from the mistakes of all the stories that we don't get to hear.
This will be a BoF session and confirmed speakers so far are: Amitha Singh Brajeshwar Oinam Brij Bhasin
As an entrepreneur who founded and ran a company at the age of 27 and shut down the company at the age of 34, I have learnt a whole lot through my journey as a first-time entrepreneur. If I had had learnings from even 2-3 people like myself, I might have had a very different journey. All the books and talks on entrepreneurism focuses on success stories, the 10 things that successful millionaires do et al.
I would like to propose a B0F meet where failed entrepreneurs come together and share their learnings with those who are either new entrepreneurs or those who are looking at starting off.
Key Takeaways To Expect From the Session To build an open culture in India on talking about startup failures. Help participants realize that failure is only a stepping stone to success An understanding of what not to do as an entrepreneur and what to watch out for as hindrances to make your startup a success
