Most startups begin with a launch party to share with the world their product or service. However, there is more to learn from failing than from launching. The Ignite Project will hold Lexington’s First Annual Fail Party, where business professionals will discuss openly why they failed. Our objective is to highlight companies that have failed at their original hypothesis. Our hope is to incentivize people to take risks, articulate lessons learned and share collected wisdoms.
The Ignite Project helps kindle ideas that ignite Lexington’s economy. Ignite not only offers free space to early stage startup companies but guidance as well in such areas as programming, game production and business development. Coupled with cultivating new business ideas and encouraging entrepreneurs in their field, Ignite was led to establish a candid discussion where startup companies can understand failure is part of the process. In addition to the dialogue we wish to create amongst the attendees, Erik A. Carlson of Business Lexington, will facilitate a panel of entrepreneurs to speak about their failures and their successes.
“We anticipate the Fail Party to become a much talked about and heavily attended event each year, where business professionals can share ideas and continue to progress and grow,” stated Lance Commodore, Director of the Ignite Project.
Lexington’s First Annual Fail Party will be hosted at Commerce Lexington on March 19th at 12 Noon. Please contact the director, Lance Commodore, to reserve your seat.
