FAIL AND LEARN
In every remarkable success story there are countless crashes and burns. Truly honest founders’ talks about what they learned from fails.

International conference CEED Founders Talk: Start. Fail. Scale brought together over 300 entrepreneurs and founders from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, USA, Germany and France. The purpose of the conference as well as CEED Slovenia’s mission is to openly share experiences and challenges because talking about problems in running a business in Slovenia is still considered a taboo.

This conference is only a stepping stone in our mission!
Throughout the year, we host and learn from successful global founders and thought leaders from around the world who bring the know-how that is most sought after here in our region.
In addition to some speakers coming from Europe and USA to this conference, we would like to give you the opportunity to learn from the founders who have built global companies in and from the region, because they are the trendsetters and thought-leaders to also learn from.
Slovenian global companies are participating in this mission within the Global Learning Initiative, which is powered by CEED Slovenia.
Conference is organized in partnership with WorldChicago and Catalyze network of founders and emerging leaders from the SEE region, who are expanding their know-how and mind-set through Professional Fellowship Program in Chicago.
