Event Details

Failure as Part of Entrepreneurship and How to Learn from it
“As an entrepreneur you have to make decisions – hundreds of decisions, big and small, every day. So at the end of the day, you have to take responsibility for that.“ For 15 years, Damian Izdebski made a name for himself as a successful entrepreneur but in the end lost everything in 2014 when DiTech was forced to file for bankruptcy. When informing the public, Damian Izdebski chose to admit his mistakes. He will share them in his talk so that future entrepreneurs can learn from his experiences. Furthermore, he will talk about how people are dealing with bankruptcy in the US and why he decided to write a book. He will give insights of how he finally decided to found another company, knowing well enough that not everything will work out smoothly.

Damian Izdebski, born in Poland in 1976, moved to Austria with his family in 1992.
