Afternoon Panel – Failcon Switzerland 2013
(Kickstart a Grassroots Revolution)
Moderator Martin Coul leads the panel discussion with start-up founders Marcus Kuhn, Michael Wolfe, Liam Boogar, Sandrine Szabo and Jakob Strebel about start-up culture in Switzerland and beyond. Some of the topics addressed are whether or not there are major differences between Switzerland (and the rest of Europe) and the US when it comes to perceiving, accepting and talking about failure, and also if people who have failed are treated differently, respected less or not trusted after their start-up goes belly up. The panel participants have many personal experiences to share and also give general statements on what exactly the stigma of failure is.
This talk was recorded and edited by Mark Melnykowycz (Idezo GmbH, Switzerland). Failcon Switzerland was held on April 16, 2013 at Theater Rigiblick in Zurich, Switzerland.
