startup wakes

Startup Wakes:

‘Startup Wakes’ are where failed startups are laid to rest. The idea surrounding these Wakes is to discuss the truth about failure in startups and how failure is not a taboo and in fact valuable experience. Many guest speakers talk about their own personal failure and how they have learned from these and used them in their pursuit of success. Guest speakers have included Irish Rugby player Jamie Heaslip and Pat MacDonagh.


Flounders was an event organised by a number of Irish entrepreneurs in the slipstream of the high profile F.ounders. Similar to the idea of the Startup Wakes but instead of laying to rest failed companies it was an event containing all failed startup founders and to see what life was like after their failure. Emphasis was once again placed on learning from your mistakes.
