““Failure is the stepping stone to success”.
Despite being aware of this saying, people tend to treat failure with a sense of dread, and associate it with negativity. What everyone fails to realize is that without making mistakes, without failing, one cannot become successful. Even the smallest of victories are a result of a sequence of failures, each step taking you nearer and nearer towards success.
It is keeping this in mind that Excel 2019 in association with IEDC has come up with the first edition of FailX. This much awaited event featuring a multitude of influencers from all walks of life, aims to invoke the spirit of the phoenix in everyone, inspiring them to work through failures. Juste a phoenix is resurrected from it’s own ashes more alive than ever, one should break through his or her failures, and rise to success. Hence the theme, ‘Rise like a Phoenix’. The event also includes a plethora of activities, and hopes to aspire and enthuse all the bright young minds out there.
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centres (IEDC) aims to provide a platform for students to bring out their innovative ideas. FailX will be the pre-event to Technopreneur, which is IEDC's flagship event of the year. By associating with FailX, IEDC hopes to keep students encouraged, motivating them to keep working on their ideas. Stressing on the fact that one defeat shouldn't break you, FailX hopes to guide people through their failures, helping them to face and overcome all challenges in their lives, thereby inspiring them to reach great peaks.
