Failure, the other 'f' word [Creative Mornings]

896 views

Published on

I was invited to Creative Mornings SIngapore (http://creativemornings.com/cities/sg) to give a talk about Failure. I don't mind being affiliated with the term, as I've had a number great lessons learned from what some label call failures, but I just call it taking risk.

What does it mean to fail? What are some ways startups fail? What should you keep in mind to stay succesful?

Tolerance for Failure = Appetite for Risk. I'm in the business of investing in risky startups, so I love to see entrepreneurs that share the same appetite.
