It’s not easy being an entrepreneur and it is practically impossible to be a SUCCESSFUL one. In fact, having some battle scars from a failure or two will make your next endeavor more successful (hopefully). Have you had a #FAIL tag assigned to your brand? You probably can be a speaker or an expert at FailCon. But the goal of the conference is to help you move beyond the failure and on to the next success!

Some of the questions that will be discussed at FailCon are (from the FailCon site):

  • What variables do VCs watch for to preemptively prevent a company going under?
  • How do you financially prepare for the possibility of failure: legally, fiscally, and in your team?
  • What have some of the leading executives today learned from their past experiences?
  • What are you watching out for with the current social web and rising companies?
  • How do you layoff or fire an employee or partner?
  • How do you save a failing company?
  • How do you recover from a failed product or marketing campaign?
  • Early team communication and where it can break down.
  • What ruins viral campaigns.
  • How investors handle failing companies.
  • How to handle a client if your service fails to deliver.
  • Classic UI and design mistakes.
  • Common online marketing mistakes.

Photos: GoGrid at Web 2.0 in San Francisco

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by

GoGrid was an exhibitor at the 2009 Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco last week. It’s a show devoted to Web 2.0 companies and technologies. We host many Web 2.0-ers on GoGrid, mainly because it’s an ideal environment to set up a dynamically scalable infrastructure, billed on a pay-as-you-go basis. Perfect for that boot-strapped company or business that are really watching their IT bottom line and don’t want huge capital expenditures hitting their already tight budgets.

Here are some photos taken by GoGrid’s Tim Wayne.
