Lessons from the Fyre: Working Through Disaster

Main Stage

15:00 - 15:10

Lecture

Plans fail, but maybe none so grandly as Fyre Festival, the music festival/social media disaster that was the source of two 2019 documentaries. As a consultant for Fyre, Marc watched the ship go down, witnessing every flawed choice that led to the festival’s ultimate failure. In this bracing talk, entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Weinstein explains why Fyre’s collapse is such a compelling lesson to be learned, a microcosm of trends permeating today’s society.
