"Society obsessed about success, not appreciating real value of failure"

The sentence above tells us about the dark side of Korean society. Korean society is too harsh to one's failures. Although it remains a valuable experience at last, people say "Failure is just failure." Even the venture businesses where failure is necessary abhor failures. Failure causes fatal losses in the representative's life. How about sports? Although it is getting better, all the spotlights and supports seem to exist just for the medalists.

Such an environment of Korean society is now an unbearable burden to many people. People do not challenge to do uncertain things because they are afraid of failures. Stabilized lives with low risks of failure is what people desire and endow the most value. The fact that only 12% of people aged from 20s to 30s, who were supposed to be the most active in challenging new businesses, found their own company shows us people are afraid of failure and also challenge. And is even making our future hopeless.

We the So V.I.P. members have long been searching for some practical methods that could change such atmosphere of Korean society. And holding a TEDx conference is what we chose. The 3rd TEDxSinchon conference is about 'Successful Failure', like those of two previous events, and will be our continuous step to change society.
