Year-end Startup Party @ Blk71 Singapore


December is the month to reflect and celebrate. We don't have to tell you that reflecting and celebrating -- although great by itself -- is much better done in the company of friends, fellow fire-starters, thought-provoking ideas, and two satisfying glasses of wine.

**This is party is a collaboration of a few different entrepreneurs... and you!

- Panel Chat on redefining sucess and rethinking failure

- Enjoy drinks with like-minded entrepreneurs (makers, movers and shakers)

Attendees will enjoy 2 drinks and food. We will serve wine, beer, and soft-drinks!
So come and tell us -- what has success been for you this year? 
A company that didn't event exist months ago? A new way of looking at problems? A difficult conflict followed by greater understanding? Your resilience, persistence, and inventiveness on a problem? A mistake that taught you better than your college degree?
Come and celebrate!

Panelists (we're rounding them up now!)

This is an interactive panel -- we'll get stories from these folks for sure, but we're looking for your questions and experiences as well.
