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 TIM #Wcap Accelerator in Rome on October 5th will prove you wrong.

With the support of Robert Bosch Foundation and Ashoka, Pitch your Failure night is a new initiative launched by four Mediterranean Ashoka ChangemakerXchange alumnus from Italy, Greece and Tunisia who met in a CXC 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 spot.

Three social entrepreneurs from Italy and Egypt will have the chance to speak about an entrepreneurial failure they had overcome. Failure will be the common ground for all speakers. Not perfect stories, but true stories. We are inviting as speakers, people who had a project, a company or an initiative that failed and didn’t go as planned but succeeded after that failure. People who are ready to share their mistakes in public, who consider that failure is a mandatory step to reach success and who are motivated to inspire others and to help them overcome the fear of failure.

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