Postmortem.HK is a no-bullshit educational startup conference that tries to draw lessons from startup failures. This is not going to be your regular startup “entertainment”, but one day of shared startup lessons from which you can actually learn from.
Why Postmortem.HK? Postmortem is not about failure being the end of the road. There are valuable lessons to be drawn from our mistakes. Overnight success is mostly a celebrated myth. Twitter only evolved out of a failed Odeo and took considerable time to gain traction. Remember Burbn? It’s the name of the failed startup that later pivoted into what we now know as Instagram. It took Rovio over 51 games before landing success with Angry Birds. Behind these failures, there are many lessons that have led to the success that later followed. At Postmortem.HK we want to take the time to explore the mistakes and failures founders and investors in Hong Kong have gone through. Because this is where the real learning starts.
What to expect? Expect a day of exciting sessions on product pivots, dealing with startup failure, co-founder troubles, life lessons from startup failure to success, the perils of zombie startups, and missed investments from our line-up of speakers.
