Fail conference

In Flanders, bankruptcy can end your business career while in contrast failure is accepted in ‘the Valley’, as a consequence of risk taking. Entrepreneurs who fail gracefully will find themselves funded again. The US has proven to be more entrepreneurial than Europe in large part because it has embraced a culture of “failing forward” as a common tech-industry phrase puts it. The ticket price for this conference is 100 euro. Students are eligible for a free ticket. Please contact for more information.
