Fail Smart: Mistakes to Learn From
Fail Smart: Mistakes to Learn From is a curated crash course in learning from failure. It’s all about tapping into each other smartly—engaging our experiences, creating a space where we can learn fast and from each other so we can get on with what we do best. In this first installment of turnstone’s Small Talks series, local entrepreneurs will share their experiences around launching and growing a new company. Learn what did and didn’t work, and apply those tangible lessons to your own business, whether you’ve already started one, or are simply thinking about it. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to interact with entrepreneurs in an intimate, interactive setting at this free panel discussion. Free Moleskine pocket notepads to all pre-registered attendees, with giveaways at the event.
Discussion hosted by The Work Spot, Duluth's premier coworking space, located on Main Street in historic downtown Duluth.
