  1. Let us tell you something you already know Our culture

    does not accept failure But… why?
  2. Fear of failure prevails like a virus The result is…

    No timely action for problems Discouraged bold actions and new starts Massive sufferings and stigmas
  3. Let’s re-shape our culture for failure The one that accepts

    fear of failure, and understands it as a learning experience and a natural part of starting anything new or bold.
  4. Two years ago in Finland, we started our first The

    Day for Failure to celebrate failure and promote understanding of failure as a learning experience and a natural part of starting anything new or bold. With a vision to eventually make October 13th a national flag-raising day, we’ve interviewed most well-known figures and gathered people together to share their failure stories and lessons learned. To our surprise, extensive media coverage and attention from public followed. Last year, we saw 80,000+ views for our videos, 300+ personal failure stories shared, as well as 35+ articles covered by major newspapers. Given a small population of Finland, this was no small number. Since then, we came to truly believe in our power to make the difference and aspire to amplify our impact on a global scale.
