  • 10. Two years ago in Finland, we started our first The Day for Failure to celebratefailure and promote understanding of failure as a learning experience anda natural part of starting anything new or bold.With a vision to eventually make October 13th a national flag-raising day, we’veinterviewed most well-known figures and gathered people together to share theirfailure stories and lessons learned.To our surprise, extensive media coverage and attention from public followed.Last year, we saw 80,000+ views for our videos, 300+ personal failure storiesshared, as well as 35+ articles covered by major newspapers. Given a smallpopulation of Finland, this was no small number.Since then, we came to truly believe in our powerto make the difference and aspire to amplify ourimpact on a global scale.
