Post Mortem Talks
It’s ok to talk about Failures. Post Mortem talks focusses on the not to be discussed in public big mistakes made by entrepreneurs. It’s a first of its kind startup meetup where veterans and emerging startups come together for a discussion in an open forum and discuss about failures and the learning experiences.
Every failure has a story and every story has a learning. To make the learning all embracing, we have shortlisted 4 startup evangelists who have created startups that have completed a life-cycle and have reinvented many others. These panellists have worked on conceptualisation of an idea to building a product to raising money and finally struggling, laying off and closing the startup. At this event, they come together to discussed in public big mistakes made by entrepreneurs.
Post Mortem talks is about making it ok to talk about mistakes. Afterall, no successful person has gotten to where they are without running into major road-blocks.
