Event series shares past startup failures from female entrepreneurs
Rochester, NY - The Failure Sessions, presented by Digital Rochester's (DR) Entrepreneurial SIG is a storytelling event that embraces and celebrates Failure as a learning tool. The event will be held Apr. 6, at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre starting at 6 p.m.
After the success of three Failure Sessions events in 2015 the coming evening will focus on a female perspective on how failure and success are natural partners. Speakers include Lisa Withers, CEO at Spectracom, TrueTime; and Lisa Pietrangeli, CEO at 36Software, as they reveal accounts of standing face-to-face with failure and coming out on the other side.
If you are a startup participant, entrepreneur, investor, ecosystem contributor, or someone who loves a good story, register for The Failure Sessions and help make failure a regular topic of discussion on the road to achieving startup success.
The Failure Sessions on Apr. 6 will begin with open bar cocktails, appetizers, and networking at 6 p.m. at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 20 Windsor St., Rochester, NY 14605.
