Calling all failures! Apply by Nov. 19 to win $250!

Failure. We’ve all been there! In the thick of it, failure feels like defeat, but more often than not our deepest learnings and greatest innovations come from completely missing the mark the first time around. But we rarely we share these experiences. Let’s change that! In this Fail Fest, we’ll talk about the risks we’ve taken, the unanticipated outcomes, and the lessons we’ve learned along the way. We’ll shift the conversation from celebrating achievements to celebrating setbacks; from a focus on what did work, to what didn’t; from sharing best practices to sharing lessons learned, the hard way. Do you have a failure that has taught you more than a success? Have you taken a risk and didn’t reap the anticipated rewards? We want to hear from you! Submit your failure and be in the running to pitch it during the Food Systems Leadership Network’s inaugural Fail Fest. Here’s what the Fail Fest will look like: You’ll have around five minutes to present your failure to your peers – and, importantly, what you learned from it! Participants will then vote on the “most epic failure” – winner gets $250! Then we’ll have an open forum discussion where we’ll share our experiences and trade tips for transforming mistakes into successes Get excited to turn those lemons into lemonade and submit your failure here: And be sure to register for the Dec. 5 Fail Fest here:
