First-time entrepreneurs, small start-ups and new products often flop before they flourish. And most of us have failed – at least once – in our personal or professional lives.  But what determines if we will eventually bounce back?

Failure is how people and businesses learn, grow and eventually succeed. And America’s business world fosters this cycle – allowing people and companies to fail only so they can pick themselves up again. How do people and businesses turn challenge and blunder into opportunities for growth? 

Join New America NYC for a conversation about how to recognize mistakes early and harness our failures to help us succeed.
