From the event registration site: “FailCon has traveled around the world, visiting over a dozen countries since its inception in 2009. Now we’re back in our home city of San Francisco to teach new lessons, focus on the best stories of the year, and continue helping founders build the strongest product they can, through FAILURE!

Hear how major players in the industry have dealt with startup troubles while keeping a positive, tenacious, and energetic attitude through it all.”
