Fail Fest 2018: Focus on Youth, Families, and Mental Health

Fail Fest 2018: Focus on Youth, Families, and Mental Health

Have you been shaped by failure? Many of us don’t realize is failure is an opportunity for learning and innovation. By focusing on failures, we learn how to pull ourselves up and find the spark we need to move forward.

Launch Fishers is proud to be a part of the annual Fail Fest, celebrating failure as a mark of leadership and risk taking. It’s a day for us to learn from successful entrepreneurs and community leaders who have failed a time or two and have built something out of those failures.

This year’s event is the first Fail Fest of its kind, where the focus is on junior high and high school youth, their families, and mental health. Hear from speakers across a wide range of ages and experiences, all who will share stories of how failure has shaped their successes and encouraged them to grow.

Registration is FREE
