Code for America - Dir-Talent Initiative


The citizens of Silicon Valley pride themselves on their willingness to fail: loudly, publicly, and repeatedly. This acceptance of failure is one of the things that makes the entrepreneurial lifestyle so appealing. Problem is, it's not always the case. We rarely hear the true stories about the companies that started strong but fizzled out.
