The 2nd Annual Postmortem Conference Showcases the Best Startup Failures, Pivots and Missed Opportunities

Failure is part of life, and we will always keep failing, but few things are worse than repeating the failures of others. Learn from their mistakes, take the path less walked, it might end up being the right one.

“Postmortem is a process, performed at the conclusion of a project to determine and analyze elements of the project that were successful or unsuccessful.”

Following last years success, Postmortem Conference is back! It will take place in Hong Kong (again), but this time at Hysan Place, Causeway Bay.

Postmortem Conference is where founders, investors, lawyers, mentors, etc share their stories of failures, pivots, co-founder fights, stress, missed investments, production problems, fund raising issues, and much more.
