#embracingfailure: A special High Growth Happy Hour event with TechTown and Model D


Jul 27, 2017 , 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We may fail daily, we may fail spectacularly—but if we don’t take the risk, how can we grow and succeed? Let’s start telling small businesses and entrepreneurs not just that it’s ok to fail, but that it is essential. Your growth—and that of your business—depends on it.
Our panelists will open up about their failures and we invite you to contribute to the conversation. Bring a friend, network, make new friends. Food and drinks on us.
