Innovation involves risk, and we have all tried new things that didn’t work, some spectacularly. Come to share and listen to how we cope and grow from our failures in this support group for innovators. How do you recognize what didn’t work? How do you know when to improve the project and try again or when to scrap it? Who determines success? How do we stay positive about our work despite the setbacks?
