Success and Failure Yield Entrepreneurial Insights

The innovation arena is blessed with founders, investors and others ready to share insights.  Their desiderata for startups embrace everything from how to talk to investors to “don’t buy that BMW too soon.”  What’s not so often clear is which of the many admonishments was key to a particular venture’s journey.  For example, be aware that when co-founders’ visions diverge,  for better or for worse the Board most likely will support the founder who landed most of the investment.  We’ve asked our speakers to include in their presentations examples highlighting oft-overlooked elements of success (or failure).
