The Bermuda Economic Development Corporation [BEDC] will host the Fail Fast, Pivot Quickly, Bounce Back seminar to help entrepreneurs learn how to “fail fast, pivot quickly and bounce back after failure.”

The seminar will be held at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute [BUEI] on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019 from 8:30am – 11:00am.

“Failure is often looked at as the end and at BEDC we are working to dispel that myth. We want to teach entrepreneurs that failure is just another step in the path towards building a successful business,” a spokesperson said.

“The Fail Fast, Pivot Quickly, Bounce Back Seminar will give entrepreneurs insight on what it is like to fail, teach them how to learn from failure and provide them with firsthand experiences that outline what it takes to turn that failure into future success.
