he theme for QACE 2016, Fail Harder, captures the struggle many entrepreneurs must face. We’re sure you’ve heard the stat that 90% of startups fail; well, 90% of entrepreneurs don’t. They pick themselves back up and start all over.
This year, we aim to highlight the obstacles even the most successful entrepreneurs have had to weather on their journey to success. We want to show delegates that companies like AirBnB, that are currently valued at $25 billion get rejected time and again when looking for first round funding. We want to encourage delegates to Fail Harder as the best way to learn is through failure.
