Topic:

Failure is the part we hate talking about — but it’s a critical component of success. 

When Alan Wilson, co-founder of gaming company, Tripwire Interactive, was unable to get venture capital, he and his partners had to bootstrap it. Even more of a challenge, they had to get creative when it came to distribution. Today they are well-established in the industry, with over 40 million units sold. To get there, they had to risk failing, the right way. 

Register for Alan Wilson’s Founders Network global keynote about turning failures into opportunities and gain insights into:

  • Taking smart risks and planning for the worst
  • Finding creative methods of funding and distribution
  • Making bootstrapping work
  • Delegating more

This is also the launch of fnDC Chapter.
