Dearly beloved, IT'S BACK!
Join us for the Startup Funeral... we are gathered here today to pay our respects to failed startups.
TechHub examines the fail fast – learn quick culture that permeates the startup world.
Startups will often have a booming launch party, spend forever finding a cofounder and if they're lucky, get acquired by larger companies... but this not the only exit strategy. They sometimes (ok, to tell the truth - statistically quite often) fail. Teams split up, customers don't show up, investors pull back. TechHub is really keen to engage with the culture of failing fast and learning from mistakes.
If you’d like to come and mourn some startups, hear their stories and learn from their mistakes (as well as take part in a spurious wake) then sign up below.
Meet our speakers:
Karin Nielsen will talk about Fluenty, a London-based translation platform. The company ran out of cash after it failed to secure follow-up funding to a September 2015 seed round. Fluently was an online translation platform that sought to automate away the project management part of the supply chain.
