Altman in the News: FailUp

November 24, 2015 4:15 PM

Taking advice from Thomas A. Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, Altman senior Ethan Levy is finding promise in failure. As Edison said, "I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Levy, a member of the Altman inaugural cohort who is graduating in May with a BA in Political Economy and a BSM in Management, started working on FailUp during his freshman year on campus. Like most entrepreneurs and inventors, Levy recognized the importance of creating a positive space where students can collaboratively brainstorm ideas that may not be quite ready for execution. FailUp allows these ideas to be tweaked and improved by a community of like-minded individuals in order to successfully jump start student ventures!

FailUp officially launched on September 17, 2015. Users can sign up on the FailUp website and get started pitching new ideas or giving feedback on active ideas on the site. Check out the New Wave article on Ethan to get a closer look at how he came to launch this awesome idea!
