Event description

Description

You are a wannabe entrepreneur but you still hesitate to start the journey because of fear of failure?

You watched the video of Jack Ma talking about how he failed 10 times to join Harvard?

You heard the story of Thomas Edison who made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb but still you think this only happens for genius people?

Pitch your Failure night in Berlin on March 23rd will prove you wrong.

The ChangemakerXchange community proudly invites you to attend an event that flips around everything you thought true about success. With the support of the International Alumni Center (IAC Berlin), Goethe-Institut, European Cultural Foundation, Compagnia di San Paolo, Ashoka, and UIDU, Pitch Your Failure night is a new initiative launched by five Mediterranean Ashoka ChangemakerXchange alumni from Italy, Greece, and Tunisia who met in a ChangemakerXchange summit in Palermo in December 2016. Their common objectives? Changing steadfast mindsets that believe failure equals to loss, making failure a source of reorienting and creating positive opportunities, empowering students and wannabe entrepreneurs, and bringing successful social entrepreneurs from Mediterranean region under the spotlight.

Five social entrepreneurs with different backgrounds and experience will share a story about an entrepreneurial failure they have overcome. Failure is the common ground for all speakers. Not perfect stories, but true stories.

Don’t miss the chance to be inspired, to learn from the mistakes made by entrepreneurs from the same environment as yours, and to discover more about social entrepreneurship and Ashoka ChangemakerXchange.
