The Best Mistakes I've Made: Ex-Idealog editor Matt Cooney on why 'you're only as good as your next venture'
Idealog has partnered with Callaghan Innovation to take a look at the nature of failure in business – the good, the bad and the unintentionally educational. So we’re asking questions: Is there a stigma, in this country, around ‘failure’? Is it a good thing to ‘fail fast’? Would you be wary investing in a start-up run by an entrepreneur with a string of failed businesses? We’ll be presenting the results of our survey in a special feature – ‘The F Word’ – in the next issue of Idealog. In the lead up to that, we’re asking Kiwi high-fliers and heavy-hitters about what failure means to them, what they’ve learned, and what ‘mistakes’ they’re most proud of.
