FailCon is one of my favorite annual events. It’s a a conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers, and designers to study their own and others’ failures and prepare for success. It’s at the forefront of a growing movement of entrepreneurs who are able to try, fail, learn and share their lessons. Pretty amazing stuff.
I sketchnoted the whole conference; this collection includes high-resolution graphics of the nine talks. Each speaker shared a failure as well as lessons learned and tips to know about to avoid duplicating their failure. The honesty, openness and candor was a refreshing change from the “we-are-killing-it-we-know-it-all” attitude that is often present in tech conferences.
