CEO Celebrating Entrepreneurial Failures During GEW 2012
Jul 31, 2012
The Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization(CEO) will spend Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012 celebrating failure. Each day, CEO, an organization focused on inspiring college students to start a business, will reveal one of their members' stories of entrepreneurial failure and the lessons they learned from it. Along with these articles, CEO will focus on helping students avoid or at least manage the loss of a failed endeavor.
In 2011, CEO celebrated GEW by hosting a "Spread Entrepreneurship" panel on several of their 245 chapters' campuses. The panels focused on showcasing entrepreneurs and fielding questions from students and faculty on different aspects of their business with the goal of spreading the idea of entrepreneurship cross-campus.
Although the organization usually celebrates success, they feel an important emphasis should be placed on both celebrating and explaining failures by those who were brave enough to take the dive into starting their own business.
