December 12, 2013
6:30pm - 9:00pm CET
(UTC +1hr)

Failure can take many forms and sometimes we have to pay a high price for our mistakes. By looking at what we can learn from failure and how we should approach it, with this event we intend to highlight stories of “failures worth spreading”. So, let’s embrace failure and listen to the dos and don’ts generously shared by the people who have failed – small or big time.
