“If your life is one long success story it won’t make for a good read. What’s more, you’re most likely a liar. We all have ups and downs, trials and tribulations, failures and triumphs: we just hope to come out stronger on the other side.” -Richard Branson

What is the meaning of failure? In Learning from Failure we gather speakers who will talk about the times they have struggled and what they have learned from their struggles. Let’s break the negative stigma in the word “failure”. Failure is needed for success. Failure means that you tried and that you are one step closer to your goal.


Antti Savola – Snowboarder-wrestler-engineer-philosopher-entrepreneur. Antti will tell us about his experiences how important it is to have the mindset, that failing is not the end. “Dare to fail” -mindset is the first step of learning.
