NYCi Meetup #2 The Failure Method: Photos + Recap

The NYCi team is proud to report “The Failure Method: Why Taking Risks is Important to Being Successful” was a huge success! Our gracious hosts, Meetup HQ, set up an amazing space and treated everyone to pizza and drinks. Shout out to Kathryn, Justin, Erin and Nora for being so great to work with. All attendees received beautiful cards and stickers from Holstee and awesome ecosystem notebooks thanks to Sterling Publishing.

It was an honor to moderate a panel of such inspiring creative professionals. Amber Rae, Jason Boog, Wendy Wecksell, and Dave Brown answered questions about risks they’ve taken, how they bounced back, things they wished they’d done, how to be a great intern, and more!

Thanks again to our sponsors:, Sterling Publishing, Holstee, and The Photobooth Project.

“I loved each panelist’s honesty; their experiences are inspiring me to get over the fear of failing and now, I’m actually looking forward to it because it might just make a cool story some day.”
“Very inspiring speakers with great content, advice, suggestions, and an extremely hopeful message! Nice mix of student & business networking opportunities, too.”
