For our 3rd Anniversary, Founders@Fail will be interviewing our very

While most of us spent
our college years doing keg stands in dirty basements, Matt and Brad
already demonstrated an entrepreneurial flair, selling "gently used"
furniture from the Yale scrap heap by pitching it as "historic works
from the Yale archives." After exhausting Yale's supply of furniture the
pair founded GoCrossCampus, a real world game of Risk that exploded
across college campuses in 2007 only to crash under the combined stress
of crashing servers and pressure to monetize. Since then, the pair have
built General Assembly into a global community stretching from LA to
Berlin. Hear lessons learned along the way at a very special Three Year
Anniversary of Founders@Fail.
