On April 26, 2014 FailCon, a one-day conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers, came to the Atlanta Technology Village. Entrepreneurs, CEO’s and founders spoke about past failures and highlighted their newfound successes. Top speakers included: Michael Tavani, Co-founder of ScoutMob, Geoff Wilson, Founder of 352 Media and Corey Stanford, Founder of Blazetrak; among a list of other entrepreneurs.
FailCon partnered with the Atlanta Channel to bring the conference to one of the top business startup cities in the south. Executive produced by Atlanta native, Amber Saunders, Esq., FailCon teaches new lessons and focuses on major stories of the year, while continuing to help founders build the strongest products they can. “You aren’t a real entrepreneur until you have had to deal with failure, and recovering from it—financially, emotionally and practically—can be challenging,” said Saunders.
FailCon Atlanta targeted approximately 200 founders and investors from the metropolitan area, while receiving sponsorship for the event from: Saunders Law Group, EA Ventures, Nichevertising, TechPines, The Resource Guild and Eventbrite.
