This Thursday KANEKO, in conjunction with the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, will host the first in a three-part series of lectures on the the lessons that can be learned from professional and personal failure.

Marcus Nelson (left), founder and CEO of San Francisco startup Addvocate, will speak at the first Failing Forward Conversations along with Anne Trumble, founder and director of Omaha nonprofit Emerging Terrain and Dr. Carl Greiner, a professor of psychiatry.

“A community that accepts and endorses failure is a community that fosters an environment of creativity and innovation,” Dusty Reynolds, Omaha Chamber director of entrepreneurship and innovation, said on the event’s website. “The hope is that Failing Forward Conversations can serve as a catalyst for Omaha to have more open and honest dialogue about failure.”

The event, which runs from 6:30-8 p.m., is free and open to the public. To register or learn more about the event, visit everbrite.com.
