FailCon is a one-day conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to study their own and others' failures and prepare for success.
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 plan to reach over 600 attendees from around the world, starting in the beautiful city of Paris, France. We'll partner with founder organizations to help strengthen relationships and provide support structures to allow entrepreneurs to take greater risks and find success. http://france.thefailcon.com
