SETsquared Bristol: Startup Stories- Thank you, Next

Panel Discussion

9th Nov 2023




Engine Shed, Station Approach, Redcliffe, BS1 6QH

While we always strive for success, failure is also a part of the startup story.

This event aims to demystify and destigmatise some of the pain points of the startup journey. The statistics about startup failures are out there, however the important stories behind these brands are not. These failures are rarely the end of a founder’s story and it’s this side (the pivot), as well as personal learnings and advice on navigating failure, that this event will explore.

Come to hear the stories, challenge the taboos and feel less scared with the word ‘failure’. Most importantly, come to find out that failing is by no means the end of the journey.
