Sandra Fisher-Martins - Fail Faire at the Oxford Foundry

The 'F' word: A fail faire

About the event

This event is part of the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, and is open for all to attend.

Failure is inevitable. In fact, it’s essential – to learning, to persisting, to remembering that we (and our idols) are only human. In the social impact space, it can be especially hard to be open about failure, because there is often so much more riding on the line than simply finances. Which is exactly why being candid and celebrating risk-taking is so important! Come ready to hear straight-up tales of epic mistakes and blunders – and to celebrate your brave compatriots taking the stage. 

This event is run in partnership with the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and the Oxford Foundry, Oxford University's entrepreneurial hub that supports a student-led community where innovation and creativity lives and breathes.

The Fail Faire is free for anyone to attend but advance registration is recommended.
