Event Producer, Webwallflower Events

Website | @webwallflower

I am an event producer for the Bay Area Startup Community, having managed shows including SF MusicTech Summit, Inside Social Apps, Unleashed Conference, SF Beta, and Finance4Founders.

I am also the creator and executive producer of FailCon, a one day summit focussed on helping startup founders identify, prepare for, and learn from the most common mistakes made. This year’s event attracted over 450 people, and will probably be traveling to New York, Paris, and Montreal next year.

A new venture will fail in dozens ways: design, scaling, customer service, team development and more. Learn the most common mistakes entrepreneurs make, what ruins startups and new projects in their first year, and how you can best prepare from those who have gotten through it." Read more.
