FailPDX back in action!

FailPDX will be kicking off the new year with a 4 person panel discussing the trials and tribulations of building a successful business. Each panel member will share their personal failures, what they learned from the experience, and answer any questions we may have. This FailPDX event is officially part of Portland Startup Week. Startup Week is a free, five-day celebration of our community that builds momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship. The week is led by local entrepreneurs and hosted in amazing spaces all over town.

For those who may not be familiar with our group: FailPDX was created out of direct response to a lot of the meetups and conferences that seemed to be focused on all of the good things about being part of startup and taking chances. The truth is, success is a unicorn. FailPDX was created to remind people that failure is inevitable. This group is a place where everyone can come together to listen and share their failure stories.

If you are interested in speaking at or sponsoring one of our events, please email [masked].

Parking can be a bit sparse sometimes. If you can't find parking outside Centrl Office, I suggest parking in the Whole Foods Garage at:

NW Davis St & NW 13th Ave, Portland, OR 97209

It's fairly close (a block away).

Look forward to seeing everyone!
