FailCon was started in 2009 by Cass Phillipps, an event planner for the startup community, and Diane Loviglio, founder of a cleantech startup. Through Failcon, Cass and her co-producers around the world hope to change the global opinion of failure. The lifestyle of an entrepreneur is wrought with small failures and mistakes, and if these are not acknowledged and discussed early, they only worsen. FailCon gives people a platform to share these lessons learned in a safe, productive and educational environment.
