No one becomes a bishop unbeaten - Of failures and mistakes in innovation

12. maí 2023

May 26th, 11:15-12:45 in Gróska, Sykursalur

Join us to celebrate failures and mistakes in the innovation process at this Friday-lunchtime event, held as a part of the Iceland Innovation Week. What better way to learn than from the mistakes of others?

No one will ever start a company or market a new product or service without making some critical mistakes. At this unique event entrepreneurs, innovators, and representatives of innovative companies will share some juicy stories of how they got burned and how some of their mistakes have led to great things (and how others didn’t).

The event is organised by the Icelandic Intellectual Property Office, Controlant and the Federation of Icelandic Industries. It will neither be streamed nor recorded.
