Co-Founder Execution Labs (Montreal)
While the thought of failing is scary to most, it is in fact a necessary ingredient for success. How can we foster a tolerance for failure in terms of taking risks and experimenting? If we are failing, it means we are pushing the boundaries of what is possible. This lively presentation will provide counter-intuitive insight as to why success always starts with failure and, how to best go about innovating fearlessly.
