Failure:Lab Comes to East Lansing

By Amanda Lewan on March 20th, 2014 / Comments

Failure:Lab, the emotionally moving event that looks closely at other’s failures, is back again this time in East Lansing.

We caught the Detroit show and were overwhelmed with the honesty, empathy, and the creative and entrepreneurial stories shared. The showcase of personal stories helps anyone better understand the journey towards success.

Failure:Lab will take place at Michigan State University’s Wharton Center for Performing Arts on Tuesday, April 1st in partnership with the Associated Students of Michigan State University.

Who’s up this time for sharing their stories? Check out the current lineup:

  • Mark Hollis, Michigan State University athletic director
  • Mike Sager, bestselling author and award-winning journalist
  • Jeff Barrett, recently named a Forbes Top 50 Influencer In Social Media
  • Miz Korona, prominent Detroit emcee featured in the blockbuster movie “8 Mile”

“Don’t let the name fool you. While the stories may be about failure, the event is really about courage, determination and the strength to get back up,” said Jonathan Williams, co-founder of Failure:Lab.

Storytelling, music, local creative acts, and social sharing *#FailureLab make this a great experience for students and professionals to see. Tickets for Failure:Lab MSU, which are $10 with a valid student ID and $15 for the general public, are on sale today and can be purchased at
