Mess Up Night & Networking Evening at Dalston Roof Park

We hear so much about "overnight successes", "unicorns" and large investments, but so little about the amount of work, sleepless nights and miserable failures leading up to them. But we learn so much more from failures than smooth sailing, don't we? So tonight, we want to hear about the bitter professional failures. The partnerships gone sour, business ideas that crashed and burned, the bitter wind of giving up on a particualr product dream. Because success is a bad teacher and we could all use a little more apetite for risk, as well as a reminder that overnight successes take months and sometimes years of preparation, failures and learning to do better this time.
