Asian Entrepreneurs Struggle with Fear of Failure

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To many young Asian entrepreneurs, starting a company is an act of rebellion. It means defying the lessons of parents, teachers, and culture, who say: Be proper. Find a stable job. Don’t take risks. It means - in many cases - feeling uncertainty, shame, and fear of failure. It’s a struggle that will continue as these entrepreneurs gun to compete with US companies, get funding from US investors, and partner with US corporations.
This panel discusses where fear of failure comes from, how it affects Asian startups today, and what it means for the future of Asian innovation. It will include stories from the moderator's recent 6-month trip to 7 Asian countries interviewing over 100 entrepreneurs and investors.
