"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." - Samuel Beckett
This Beckett quote has become the darling catch phrase of the tech industry. It is OK to fail, it tells us, just get right back up on that horse.
What this quote doesn't detail, however, is the pain, anxiety and challenges associated with failure. How do you pick yourself up off the ground and get going again? What is the emotional toll that failure takes on the system?
Please join GeekGirl & Savoir Collab in a real & honest conversation with three impressive women who pioneered the tech industry while dealing with failure and setbacks. Learn how tenacity, courage and perseverance has guided them through their journey. Guest Panelists will include: Alex Moroch, Co-Founder of DWELR , Annie Luchsinger, Former Founder of Meet Grace & Hala Al Adwin, VP of Technology of Signal Sciences Corp
Hosted by Quilt. Lite bites and Wine provided.
