Frost Bank presents “Fail Forward”:A Special Speaker Series to help entrepreneurs navigate financial challenges and learn how to get funded!

Join us for an evening of #FailForward fun as we get real, behind-the-scenes stories straight from entrepreneurs on the challenges they faced trying to access and raise funding for their small business or startups … and learn from bankers and financial experts what those entrepreneurs could have done to make their journey easier and more successful.

In this “role play” style discussion, entrepreneurs will dig deep into their experiences and offer specific examples of actual attempts to receive funding from local banks and other institutions. A series of subject matter experts curated by Frost Bank will then walk the entrepreneurs through those stories to identify where challenges could have been prevented, averted or quickly mitigated, and then share strategies and best practices that may help you avoid some of the pitfalls that can prevent you from getting funded.
